People often speak of finding balance and living in peace. But what does that really mean? Are any of us ever fully “balanced”? And do we want to be?
What I want is not so much balance and peace – I kind of like some of that chaos and stress and stuff that spins around me (it makes me feel more alive) – but more so contentment.
To be content is sometimes seen as a somewhat negative/lazy thing these days, though – people take it as if you’ve settled for what you get when you say you’re content. But that’s not what I mean when I say I want to be content (because I certainly don’t settle).
To me, being content, means that I’m happy in the present moment. And as I live mostly in the present and don’t worry too much about the past or the future, being content is the highest state of happiness. It means that I have everything I want and need right in this moment.
And that’s pretty damn sweet, isn’t it?
Anyway, from all of this comes this weeks Friday Affirmation – simply because I want all of you to be as happy and content as I am today. So here’s what I suggest you repeat to yourself today and over the weekend and next week:
May all be well in your world, because you deserve it.
