In which tent do you live?

Monday, January 28, 2013

All men live in one of two tents: Content, or Discontent
In which tent do you live?

The contented man looks beyond his circumstances and sees a better day
The discontented man looks at his circumstances and see no other way

The contented man understands the purpose for which he was born
The discontented man looks at otherís success with a face thatís filled with scorn

The contented man has surrendered to a purpose that demands his very best
The discontented man selfishly hoarded much, and grasping for more, will not rest

The contented man has placed his values on things that will forever last
The discontented man has placed his values on things which will soon be passed

The contented man is anchored to clear goals and hardly is ever swayed
The discontented man has no goals that anchor him, and many times has become dismayed

The contented man counts his blessings, and names them one by one
The discontented man counts others blessings, and thinks he has no fun

All men live in one of two tents
Content, or discontent
In which one do you live in?

    Thank God I am a woman. So I don't have to worry about all this, as this is about men. emoticon emoticon

    I've had this discussion a lot lately. I feel fortunate that I'm one of the content people. My life isn't perfect, but it's a good life.

Thanks for sharing!

    Unfortunately....I'm the type of person who needs a little discontent to make me really want to change things instead of just settling for the way things are.

Then once I've changed things and adapted
I need the cycle to repeat to push myself a little further.
How crazy is that?
