One Woman's Attempt At A Simpler Life

“Lagom” is a Swedish word that has no specific English translation.  In essence, it means “enough” or “just right”.  It seems to be all about finding balance.  I get the impression that Americans, such as myself, can get a little confused by it – wondering if it veers too close to “average”or “fine.”  In some cases it probably does.  But I think for the most part, it is about that kind of Goldilocks, not too much, not too little, just perfect experience.

If you want to read further, there is a great definition of it on the header of a tumbler blog here.  Or a wiki definition here.  Or Lexiophile definition here.  That should be “lagom”, eh?
