What is enough?

What is enough Van Gogh

When is enough enough?  When is the effort needed to chase the dream no longer worth the price you’ll have to pay? When is it time to start enjoying the things you already have in your life?

They say that the best things in life are free.  Things such as beauty, nature, and love.  Vincent van Gogh never received the recognition he deserved for his creative gifts while he was alive — but he continued to create.

He continued to paint and express the beauty that he witnessed daily in the world around him even though it seemed as if no one else was interested in what he had to say.  He did it because he knew that what he was attempting to reveal with his work was something that went far beyond financial and social recognition.  It was art and beauty and nature and poetry and life — and if that was not enough, what is?

“I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?”
~Vincent van Gogh
