i had a very long conversation with a very wise man last night, and i took something away from the conversation that is very important.
the idea isn’t to be content with where you are, but rather to be content no matter where you are. if you’re constantly unhappy because you’re searching for bigger and better things, when you get to where you thought you wanted to be, you may continue to always want more, causing you to always be unhappy. instead, find happiness now. work towards your goals. but, no matter where life leads, keep that happiness with you.
today, i’m practicing contentment. it feels nice.
