SoCS – I Have Enough Fortune

Linda is our wonderful host for SoCS. A single word can make my brain run amuck. I think I’ll go with the first thing that popped into my head.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fortune.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

I was raised in a family with little fortune. I once thought that a fortune was having a twenty in my wallet. It was a rare occasion to have “spare” money not allocated for some mandatory bill. I knew how to live within my means which I feel fortunate for. I was, and still am, a saver more than a spender. It took quite a while to learn that it was OK to spend money on fun things when I had it. I tried to pass on my way of thinking, but unfortunately, I think I failed. 

I do not have a fortune of money, nor do I need one. At this stage of the game, I have enough to live comfortably. I can take care of my needs as well as help others. I have a fortune of memories, a fortune of love, a fortune of gratitude, and a fortune of hopes for the future. I have enough.

  1. I remember often finding a $20 in a coat pocket I had not worn for a while. That was good fortune! I, too, have all that I need. No need to yearn for anything more.

  2. I think, at times, we are better off as a people where there is not a fortune to spend – when we savor life instead of things. I’ve never been “rich” myself and have struggled financially some years, so I understand what you’ve endured. I think your attitude is wonderful and admire you for staying positive.

  3. I’m in a very similar place. I think it comes from being frugal. (Though my husband says, he’s not frugal, he’s cheap.) It’s a good place to be and also good to remember where we came from.

  4. Love this post–and the Aesop quote. It is so uplifting to read the many blog authors who understand the wealth within “gratitude”. We all struggle with “something”–but Life’s a lot better when we count our blessings, not just the potholes we need to swerve around 🙂 Much love to you–may God bless you Abundantly! ❤ PS: Wonderful to meet you here! 🙂

  5. I love the Aesop quote. And having enough is good fortune, indeed, no need for more, although it allows for generosity. I have a favorite book with the title “Enough is Plenty.” Perfect.
