I just saw a short amount of a movie that my husband had on. I had been in the other room working and when I walked through a bit of the dialogue caught my attention. What it amounted to was this idea of the law being close enough to right, like the law isn’t necessarily going to find the truth in a trial? So a verdict, whether it’s for the person or against the person, the perpetrator is only ever going to get close enough to the truth and that struck me because recently I’ve listened to Sheryl Crow’s song Strong Enough, and I guess the word enough to is somewhat triggering. We’ll say, I’m sick and tired—enough is enough, right? So I just had that word enough kind of stuck in my brain. And when I walked through the living room and heard that bit of dialogue about the law, just trying to get close enough. You know, I thought that rings true.

Hand stand strength

And so I told my husband I said, I want to see that movie. I want to but he was almost done with it. It was near the end, which is why I’m not going to tell you the name of it because I don’t want to give it away. But it had an older actor in it that I really liked too. I said, you know, maybe it wasn’t a movie I would have been drawn to for any other reason. But I said now that I’ve heard that bit of dialogue. I’m curious about it. So curious I think I want to go back and watch it. And I think he watched it without me because he didn’t think I’d be interested. This happens a lot in our household.

So this idea–does this intrigue you? I mean, it intrigues me that, like Sheryl Crow questioned would she ever find a man that would be strong enough to be able to handle her as a strong woman. No, she’s a very strong woman. She has an incredible work ethic she has if you’ve not seen it, there’s a documentary now out about Sheryl Crow and her life and of course since my husband and I are musicians (my husband more than me, but you know). I’ve sung all my life. I’ve been interested in music all my life, and certainly interested in helping him during the 20 years we’ve been together and known each other. So we often watch music documentaries.

Spiral thought: I love that song, Tough Enough.


When you’re a strong individual, and I’ve known many in my life, men and women. And I find it difficult to work for those types of people, because they are so driven. They’re typically an entrepreneur or business head, a chief among the workers. It’s difficult to work for those kinds of people.

So I got it immediately when Sheryl sang that song. Are you strong enough to be my man, even Stevie Nicks did a version with her because I can imagine Stevie Nicks is that kind of person as well? They are very driven and tend to be bipolar types too. They’re, very up–very high. They’re very low. Temperamental is another word I would use to describe those types of people. Judgmental and typically have such (strong boundaries), you don’t have to talk to them about drawing boundaries because they got walls. They don’t have boundaries. They have walls and they’re not going to let anyone infringe upon them. To the point of probably having issues with authority. I’ll just say it. And it’s probably why they’re like counterculture-ish, too.


But anyway, so that again, I come back to the idea of enough, what is enough for you, you know, and greed comes into play here too. Like when you’re talking about money or investments, retirement strategies, and all of that. What is enough? I’ve never like put a dollar figure on what enough is for me.

I’ve been with men who are too strong for me, both ex-husbands, probably because the first one wasn’t driven enough but very strong-willed and controlling in the second one was bipolar and an addict and definitely controlling and definitely would fly off the handle if (to use an analogy often used in the recovery) the tea kettles on the wrong burner on the stove he would be upset about it and a huge fight would ensue. So I mean, he would just pick something to be upset about, and a huge fight would begin. Because of course, back then my mindset was always seeking the truth. I didn’t want any bullshit excuses or that kind of thing.

What’s your “enough”?

Boy, this one took a different direction than I had planned when I started talking about all this. Suffice to say I’m just curious what your “enough” is. If you were to say, I need more XYZ in my life; I need a spouse or a relationship, or I need a different spouse. Or, I’m so happy to be alone, but I don’t have enough XYZ. Right? I don’t have enough friends, or enough good friends solid, true friends. Friends that won’t spaz out on you. If you say no to an event that’s another story. And what is enough for your retirement your nest egg, what’s enough income for where you work right now? Are you satisfied with that?

Who’s strong-willed in your circle?

Do you have strong personality types in your circle of influence? And or are you the strong one? And do you tend to push people away because they don’t measure up to your ideals of work ethic or honesty or punctual attendance or attending or calling you enough? That kind of thing? Right? So just think about that and let me know in the comments. I’m always really glad to hear from those of you who take the time to read my blog articles, especially if you do read the whole thing.

Please comment

I know that I tend to ramble, which is where the spiral comes from, the spiral thoughts, and so forth. Tangents. I thought that I would just throw out some ideas and see if this might garner some conversation and some chat among us. And of course, always feel free to send me a comment. I have to approve all comments first (or they will not display under the post). Unless I’ve already approved you in the past in which case all your comments will come through as approved. But if you do want to send me something that you don’t want made public just let me know when you comment at the beginning or end of your comment, say, you know, confidence or keep this private or please delete after Burn After Reading or something like that right? And I’ll delete it if you would like to just let me know in private, of course, you can still comment, and then I won’t show your comment on the website. Okay, fair enough.

Thank you and blessings to you and many in all ways. Peace tranquility, and serenity. Serenity now. Yes, Serenity now. OM

  1. We can never have enough Love in our life. We can never have enough Beauty in our life. We can never have enough Peace in our life. These are not passive possessions, but active, dynamic realities. We must first become a source of Love, Beauty, and Peace. “Becoming”, then, is the true nature of our journey. This is our Path, this is our Life. This will influence and determine all of our free will choices and determine outcomes. This includes relationships. Strong women and men are also given those choices. Fame, fortune and power are corrupting influences in many of their lives. Many achieve these things at the expense of the higher gifts life has to offer. These include, but are not limited to, fulfillment, inner peace and poise (grace), and lasting relationships. Strong enough, then, is having the strength to thrive regardless of what life has to offer, both good and bad, through challenges and blessings…by yourself and with others. Having a spouse, significant other, or friend who is “strong enough” means a person who can love me enough to accept my imperfections, and be able to accept my unconditional love of them.

    1. I love this perspective, Jerry! Ah yes, to stay focused on the positive uplifting aspects. Though not what Crow was singing about in her Strong Enough lyrics when she sang, “lie to me” or then again, maybe! I will listen to it again using your words here and mine for hidden meaning.
      As a sensitive, I am typically affronted by the strong abrasive types, but recognize everyone has been my teacher. Hugs!


  2. 💜 This post is exactly why I have only been married once EveryOne; no disrespect intended to ladies and gents who have remarried several times EveryBody…but it seems Divorce Rates ARE Due to Cranial DisConnect between Spouses; ergo, Being NoThing To Do with Love

  3. I don’t have too much time to comment, but I would say I don’t have enough friends yet. I want more! 😊 And as an aside, it’s funny cause I always saw that song as her being weak not strong. Like the lyrics “When I’m broken down and I can’t stand
    Would you be man enough to be my man?” I dunno 😊
