Welcome, I hope to use this blog for ideas, quotes and comments that I have found helpful and hope will be helpful for you as you navigate life's journey.
I have had reason to consider the difference between Happiness and Contentment this week. Happiness was described to me as something that is temporary and usually the result of some experience outside the self [watching a child play, winning the lottery, getting a gift etc]. Contentment surpasses Happiness. Contentment is a peace that comes from knowing your core beliefs and standards will withstand what ever storms you may encounter along the path. I like this definition. It allows us to be content, even in the middle of things that are difficult such as loss, pain and transition.
Wishing you Contentment this week~
