“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”- Frederick Keonig
Not sure who Frederick was, but he appears to have good advice on how to be content. We look and we long. We may see a shiny new car, a house on a hill or a fancy new watch, but what we don’t realize is that our eyes deceive us. It is not bad for us to admire, and even want, things that appeal to us, but we sometimes set ourselves up for disappointment. Wanting makes us feel like we’re lacking something, and unless our basic needs are not being met, chances are we are not lacking. In the face of calamity, illness or loss we tend to feel out of control and anything but content.
So how do we cultivate a sense of contentment? And how can we feel content in all circumstances? Is it even possible?
