What does it mean to be content?
We've all heard the saying, "Be content with your lot", but are we ever really "content"? Do we ever really just stop, and evaluate all the good things we have in our lives, and even more so, do we ever feel truly satisfied?
I find myself ALWAYS planning for the future. Always waiting for things to get better or happen so to speak.. I find look back and see myself saying things like, "when I do this, when this happens, after this, before that... blah blah blah." Well, what about now? What about the present? Isn't it the only time I'm promised? Why am I/we always planning for the future, and depending on happenings in the future for happiness? Why can't we just look around at what is going on around us and build our happiness from that....
Will I ever be able... to just be?
