In the Seat of Contentment

 


"To be content doesn't mean you don't desire more, it means you are thankful for what you have and patient for what's to come."
-Tony Gaskins

Like many this year I have set some intentions. One of them is to live more frugally and sustainably. This is not new, it is a journey I began last year, but it was a bit sidetracked by my major move and how that had had to happen. As I purused videos on practicing these qualities one person gave insight that was so obvious, but carried the depth of in your face wisdom. To be content with what you have already. When I stopped looked around and measured,  I realized that I already have the material things I need for the most part. If something new is needed then I will be patient and see what the best approach for bringing it into my world is. 

And I also realized I can be content with who I am basically and thankful for the wisdom I already possess, the changes and growth that I need will come to me in it's own time and in it's own way. Let's hope I can continue to live out this insight for the duration of the year....
