A good enough life.......

So what makes life good enough... I've been thinking about this and this week have had plenty of opportunities to think about what that means in practice...

 Take these two photos. The first is sunflowers which on their own have not come to much but nevertheless make a passable photo and the second is this bowl of tomatoes - clearly never ever going to ripen in any Dunedin summer outdoors - let alone this dismal one just gone. But they've become green tomato pickle and therefore proved their value.  So whats a good enough life? well  for me it is making the most of everything even when everything is imperfect. 

 One thing I really like about my job - is that even though it is busy and I'm often away these days is that when I am at home I have more energy to be creative because I have more room inside my head.  So with the April birthdays approaching and Easter coming up I am in full swing of making things. I can hear Rosie and Tom groaning  already!!

SO here's to a good enough week. 

Cheers Marg


  1. The title of this blog is really depressing. I think I just will die if my life ends up being only 'good enough'. And it couldn't be further from the truth with your life because you make the effort to make it amazing.

    And you're right, I did groan haha but liking the look of those cards!

  2. Yep, I agree with Rosie. Good enough is okay for housework, but when it comes to life in general then I want great.
    I can't wait to see what you're making!

  3. Hi Marg

    Since you've got a few negative comments about the title, I'd better point out that the photos are very positive and full of colours so wholesome, they make my mouth water!



  4. Well Marg I totally get what you mean about a good enough life - there are so many challenges and disappointments that although we may hope for the best we have to plan for the worst. I suppose that sounds quite negative but let's remember the first noble truth of the Buddha "life is suffering." Once you accept that, then it's a whole lot easier!
