Both Sides of Contentment

There are two sides of contentment, like a coin. On one side is complacency. On the other is fulfillment. You and I are the coin. Our attitude and actions will expose which side the world sees.

Fulfillment is where we can celebrate our achievements and what we attain. It is a grateful spirit that comes out from the inside. It is healthy.

Complacency can be cozy and convenient, even appear cheerful for a time. But be careful. A complacent spirit can become smug when in that mode for too long. Then it becomes more difficult to move onto new challenges that drive to new levels of possible accomplishment and contentment.

Since you control the coin, whenever complacency overcomes your fulfillment, just turn it over to the other side. That’s how you balance enjoyment of life with working toward better things in life.
