  1. I enjoyed reading this. I don’t think contentment is defined well with the word happiness. Contentment to me is a positive peaceful feeling deep inside of me. It’s hard for me to stay content because my mind is always on overdrive. I set out to do something and in my head I think, “When I finish this I will be content”, only to find myself having a flash of it and then I’m off on another plan or project to complete for more contentment.

    • Hi Lissa – thanks so much for your comments – I have struggled with that exact same thing myself! The other day a friend told me I should finish a certain project because “I will feel better about myself when I do”. I felt sad hearing that – because I used to believe that too – that I was my accomplishments. Thanks so much for reading and sharing your experiences! :-)
