Happiness vs. Contentment

Leave a comment

Happiness.  What does it mean?  How do we get it?  How do we keep it?

I sense that we, as a society, spend a vast amount of time, chasing or searching to acquire happiness.  Don’t get me wrong, I, too, enjoy being happy.  However, I find that happiness is a temporary state.  It’s shiny and glossy.

I’ve come to realize that I prefer to seek contentment instead.  Contentment is more of a state of mind or a way of life.

By expressing gratitude for, what we may consider to be, the small things in life, I am rewarded with an inner peace and able to experience true contentment.  Give it a try.

Here’s to you!
