i know a great writer and sweet woman named shauna - she and i were neighbors for a couple of years in grand rapids and we share a really amazing friend who lives in california. shauna is smart and funny and most of all, honest. her books - cold tangerines and bittersweet - are fun to read and push me to be reflective and purposeful. i remember finishing cold tangerines and making a resolution to be more celebratory about life (basically means i want to throw more parties!).

today she wrote a post on her blog, and i loved it. it's about having enough - in both the positive and negative ways. i've felt like i've had enough (like i can't handle any more) and then been reminded that i actually do have exactly what i need. and i know i'll come to those times again. so if you're feeling like you're at the end of your rope, read it. and know that you're not alone.
