Contentment is . . .
“Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want, but the realization of how much you already have.” Anonymous
Are you feeling bored or depressed? Do you wish you had some more excitement in your life? Sit down and contemplate what you already have. Feel some appreciation, some gratitude. Maybe start a gratitude journal. Bad thoughts have difficulty growing in a heart that is grateful.
I like these thoughts from Ann Voskamp: “I get enough…that her calling, her story, her singleness, her chastity, her marriage, her husband, her apartment, her vocation, her house, her childlessness, her kids, her body, her health, her work is enough.
I get enough…because I get enough Jesus.
I get enough…because I get enough grace.
I get enough…because I get enough love.”
