New Year Day #16
Be happy with what you have and are, be generous with both, and you won't have to hunt for happiness.
William Ewart Gladstone
The true meaning of contentment is being satisfied with what you have and with who you are right now.
Ambition is important, but don’t see it as a trade off for appreciating what you have. When you trade today for tomorrow, you might realize you have nothing left.
It is impossible to develop contentment without gratitude, they are inseparable. And a grateful person is one who has learned to focus on the good things in their life, not the things that they lack.
Contentment is not something that's found; it is an attitude of the heart.
The key to being happy is to realize that you have what you need and become content
When you can think of yesterday without regret and tomorrow without fear, you are near contentment.
