Contentment as a lifestyle

Saturday, May 24, 2014

I find the following resource valuable and it is free:

Here the writer teaches you to have faith in your ability to cope with the uncertainty of life, and to view setbacks as great opportunities to learn or to increase your ability to cope with hard circumstances and come out the better for it. Two important chapters of which are those dealing with self respect and the act of letting go of your ideals of how things should go in your life when conflicts between your ideals and reality causes frustration, anger, or undue stress. Also, the writer stresses that contentment is not about a lack of motivation, but rather a lifestyle where you notice the happenings around you for what they are and seek understand the beauty of life in order to make necessary changes in your lifestyle out of love and compassion for others, and for yourself.

    I like to focus on beauty because then the negative fades to the background.
