Contentment is not resignation
Contentment with where you are doesn’t mean you are resigned to your life the way that it is.
Let me explain.
We all have desires to do better & be better. Dreams and wishes, whether for our own successful business or career, great relationships or friendships. We all strive each day to accomplish something that improves our lives and be successful. Hopefully, something that people will remember you by.
Are you happy with what you have? Are you content at the place you are on this journey?
The only way to move forward is to acknowledge and appreciate where you are now. Contentment is not being reconciled with your environment, or submissive to further action.
It is about recognition of what you have achieved, gratified at the challenges you have overcome, comfortable with the skin you are in and at ease where you are going.
Carrying frustration, resentment or regret only stops you from moving forward. It creates fears that you will repeat mistakes as opposed to learning from them and realising how much stronger, wiser and knowledgeable you are.
Being content is preparing your armour. It’s your protective shield to prepare you for the next step, meet the next challenge and reinforcing your passion to give you purpose.
So, if you are feeling restless, stop and take a breath. Realise that where you are, is where you are meant to be in preparation for the journey you are on in this life. Find contentment in yourself so that you can discover the treasures that lay ahead.
