How to be content.

Hey readers,

In this day and age, it is hard not to compare yourself.  I for one am guilty of this, it is so easy to assume that one has it all whilst you feel like you are floating above the water.

We can forget that what you see with your eyes on the surface may not be the actual truth. How can possibly know everything about someone when we only see a glimpse.

That is why it is important to look for content within and not on unrealistic ideas that assume make others happy.

Sometimes you can fall under the trap of negativity, where all you see is the bad stuff. That is why it is important to take stock of what is good in life. No one has it all but I am a true believer in that there is one good thing in life even if it is small.

Today I felt sad as if my life is going anyway. I could continue down the negative spiral but won't get me anywhere, it will just make me feel ten times worse.

The things I have succeeded in is getting up and making sure my children are well and happy. I have read a book and even writing this post is productive.

I think it is important to accept the things you do have and not dwell. Being content with yourself so a hard thing to achieve when there are so many messages everywhere telling us to be like this or that. You feel like you are questioning everything.

I think the main that I have learnt in my adult life is meaning and the value you put on something. I think that is a powerful thing. If you let go of connecting to something you would be amazed at how little impact it has on you.

I think the thing that is key in being content is questioning everything and working out what it means to you. Deep down is it really important to you?

What do you think about being content? Love to hear your views down below.

  3. Sometimes we all get down, but finding contentment is definitely the goal to a happy life. #MMBC

  4. Great post. It is hard to be content in all aspects of life but I do try x

  5. Great post - it's definitely way too easy to fall into the comparison trap, especially with social media etc. So important to practise gratitude and look for happiness within :) #dreamteam

  6. I agree, contentment comes from within not from anywhere else. And all achievements are good, even small ones.

  7. great post. The people I know that are the happiest are also the ones that spend the least amount of time worrying about what other people are doing. I don't think thats a coincidence #dreamteam

  8. What a great read. I think we all need a little reminder every now and again to take stock of what we have around us and remember to be grateful, and look for that happiness and feeling of content from inside. (Thank you for this fab reminder!). I do agree with Jeremy that happier people tend to not give two hoots about what other people are doing, or even what other people think of them. Thank you for sharing this reminder with the #DreamTeamLinky xx

  9. I think you're absolutely right. It is a difficult thing to be content because we are always wanting more, especially when we see what others have. I try hard to remember every day all that I have and remember to be grateful for it. I've also come to realise that having lots of possessions doesn't necessarily make you happy either. It's just an illusion. Having my family and our health is all that really matters to me at the end of the day. Thank you for sharing this great post with all of us at #globalblogging

  10. I don't want my kids to be happy, I want them to be content and accept what they have, appreciate it. It is fine to have ambition and strive for more, challenge yourself but for the sake of mental health this should be realsitic. Thanks for linking up with #dreamteamlinky
