With Contentment


“Until you make peace with who you are, you’ll never be content with what you have.”
Doris Mortman

We can have all the material possessions in the world, but if we do not know and accept our true self, we will never be truly happy.

When we stop trying to impress others with our things and career and find contentment with who we, we find everything falls into place. Being happy does not mean that everything is perfect. It means that you have decided to look beyond the imperfections.

When someone is truly happy they have at some point come to the realisation that life is not perfect but in order to make it the best life possible one must be willing to make the best out of each situation and look beyond all of the imperfections included in it. When someone is happy not everything in their life is perfect, but they have found the things in their life that make their life seem perfect.

Though we make plans, set goals for ourselves, attempt to follow our dreams, and we find out that not everything in our lives will go according as planned, one must soundly make the decision to look at life positively instead of looking at it negatively. We need to be willing to move forward in times of turmoil, and focus on the goals we can achieve.

Being happy with what you have, that is the core of happiness. When you can let go, when you can stop judging, when you can stop focusing on what is wrong, you can begin to let yourself be happy. Look at the things which are going well in your life today… be content with them.

“When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everyone will respect you.”
Laozi, Lao Tsu
