    Is feeling content a good thing? I personally feel that being challenged and discovering life is better what do you think?

    LOL -- I personally think in a world so filled with rapid change, greed and power tripping people, being content is a challenge itself.

    In order to grow, you need to be challenged from time to time.  But there is nothing wrong with contentment-it is much healthier than being bitter or angry about life.

    I would rather feel challenged for a period, then after beating the challenge, being content for a bit just to have a break, then be challenged again.

    Depends on what context.  Intellectually, I like (even *need*) to be challenged.  For everything else in life, content is ideal for me!

    I have to agree with you, being challenged is by far more preferable.  What's the point of anything if you're not challenging yourself to be better and to do greater things?
