How To Be Content With What You Have In Life
Are You Greedy and Wanting More
Are you one of those people that no matter what you have in life it isn't ever enough? Believe it or not I was the same way in my younger years. Whatever I had or was given to me it never seemed to be enough to give me contentment and happiness. So, how to be content with what you have in life is not to be greedy and wanting and wanting more. Be happy with what you are given and appreciate all that you have.
There are so many people in the world that have nothing to some people's standards and lifestyles, but those people that we think have nothing maybe that happiest people alive.
You know you don't need to have tons of material things to be content and happy and those that do have the best of everything are still not happy, because what they have still isn't enough. I can't figure it out sometimes. Many people have the world by the horns, but still want and need more.
Do you think those type of people will ever be happy for what they have and not keep wanting more? I don't think so for the fact I believe they are just greedy and spoiled. Maybe they have been given everything in life and never had to work a day in their life.
What Could Be The Reason?
This could be the reason for wanting more and more and never content with what they have. As i am writing this you may think I have a bit of jealousy going on, but trust me I am not jealous by any means. You and I may not have a world of material things or things just given to us, but we have something they may not have and that is happiness and contentment in our lives. I'm not saying those others are not happy and I am sure they are, but are they really?
I hope I don't offend someone reading this, but I wanted to say that just having material things are not enough, for me at least. I'd rather have a wonderful family and a loving and true blue wife than any material thing in the world, but that's just me.
If you ever feel as if you don't have enough to make you content and happy then take a look around you and see those that have less or even nothing in their lives and them maybe you will appreciate what you have. That is exactly what I do nowadays. i have been given a second chance at live by being able to get and stay sober so i will treasure everything I have and not want for anything but tocontinue to stay sober. That is what I live for now and not stupid material things that mean nothing but prestige to others.
So, be content with what you have in life and appreciate everything that life has to offer and by feeling this way you will be a much happier person. I know I am !
