As a person i'm contented of what i have a good family and a positive mind set how about you?
Yes I think taking all into account I am satisfied with my lot. There are some things I within my family which I wish were better, but we do cope & it is no great hassle. In my own life I have attained most of the goals I set myself, I married a gorgeous girl & after over 40 years we are both still in love with each other. I have a nice self-sufficient off grid home (two actually) in a forest that we own. Our health is pretty good but of course I am old now so have to put up with aches & pains & the inability to do things that I used to be able to do. But on the whole, yes, I am contented
That is my survival 'mantra' It is not how much one has but what one makes of what one has is the route to happiness. Looking around and seeing what I have, I am forever in the attitude of gratitude
I am content with whatever I have even in the state of lack. I have learnt that true happiness doesn't come from without but from within. I have to admit that I find it absurd to have contentment when I see others suffering due to lack. True contentment kids in addressing their plight.
I try to be content all the time, with everything I have going on. Whether it's music, work, or school. I just try to tell myself whatever it is I'll get through it eventually. So, that's how I usually stay content with myself.
I think being contented depends upon the context in which it is used. I as a person, I am happy for what I am and have presently, but I still strive for more. Does it mean I am not contended?
Yes and no. I feel very blessed with my family, my home life, and career. I am deeply thankful for where I am in life.
However, I don't countenance standing still. Much like preparedness being a way of life, I relish the forward movement to more knowledge, better fitness, a stronger financial situation, etc. Stagnation is not an option.
The bible said we should be contented with what we have. Well, i am contented with what i have at the moment but i would like to also fill in the other blank spaces in other areas of my life.
Not very contented... I could do with more money
Otherwise, life is peachy keen.
I have an entire Spotify playlist named survival...
Lately, I have been searching really hard about what it means to be content. Guess I could be a little depressed?
