Will you regret not being content with what you have?

Content with what you have

Content with what you have

Contentment – an interesting theme for me in the week in which I consider getting older (birthdays do that to you).

More recognition, options, time, freedom, stuff, money – we always seem to be wanting more of something.

It is good to want more in some areas of life -to be better at what you do, to be more of the best of you in your relationships. But it is also essential to truly appreciate what you have.

This fits with what I can do and who I am. When we focus on the negative – what we don’t have and where we are not in life rather than what we do have and where we are in life – it becomes harder to spot the positive. We can become almost anaesthetised to the good around us, and the tapes in our head are stuck on ‘what if’.

Being content with what we have, where we are in life, who we are – it doesn’t mean we stop seeking to be better, but it does mean we can stop and enjoy the moment. Recognise that we already have so much.

I am quite content being the age I am, and am very much enjoying this decade. And this is a good week to stop and look at the bigger picture of my life and recognise that what I have is more than enough. Simple things that give me pleasure: the love of my family, great friends. Good health. Music. Nature. Cake. Need I say more?
