It's not enough to be free to do.
I can not feel free when bothered by you.
It's not personal. (It's not! I swear!)
I just that freedumb can't be fully fair.

Can Settling For 'Good Enough' Lead To Increased Satisfaction?

The Saticficer's Motto
by Rachel Hoyt

I know I cannot have it all.
I know "the best" bounces and falls.
I know that wants differ from needs.
I know I can control my greed.
I know that 'good enough' is grand.
I know contentment can be planned.

This week The Atlantic highlighted the work of Barry Schwartz,
which could explain why we strive to keep up with our cohorts.

What Happenned After David Beat Goliath?

When his sling made Goliath fall,
many "Davids" felt the same call,
then history showed us "one for all"
can grow new giants we appall.

Many of my fellow crafters are leaving Etsy,
but for now it is still the best place for me
to sell my candles to the public directly.
