How Contentment can increase mental well-being.

But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.

I will define contentment as a feeling of self satisfaction. God does not love us equally rather, He loves us personally, uniquely and adequately.

Our needs and desires are different, it will be unhealthy to judge our satisfaction based on others accomplishments.

Think about a child who is in search for five stones to build a house, when he got the first stone, he was happy and ventured for the second one with enthusiasm. When he got the second stone, he threw a party for his friends.

Contentment will make the journey of life fun and easy. It not that you settled for less rather you appreciate what you have now. If only we can pause a bit to look at how far we have gone then we realised how ungrateful we’ve being to ourselves.

Accepting your current position will give you good knowledge of what you need to get to the desired position. Paul said that he has learnt the secret on content. This is the secret: He who is not contented with one can’t be content with many. Because lack of content leads to greed.

Today, write out the things you are grateful for.
