True contentment and happiness does not come from finally getting what we wanted, but appreciating what we do have.
11/17/10 Contentment is something we must learn. It isn’t a trait we were born with. How you may ask? We entered this life empty handed and we leave it the same way. All we really need then is something to eat, to wear, and to live in order to be content. Everything beyond that is extra! Contentment is possible when we stop striving for more in the externals and look inside for all the blessings with a grateful heart.
