Today's Quote: “When I was young, my mother always told me happiness was the key to life. When I went to school they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy.” They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they don’t understand life.” ~ John Lennon
Today's Question: What word did you wish to be when you grew up? Are you being it?
How I Apply:
I always wanted to be content. Happiness came and went but contentment could last.
I apply contentment to my life by using the many wonderful coaching tools and techniques I have learnt over the past several years. By listening to my authentic voice. By hanging out with others who bring out the contented me. By enjoying the moment and bringing an air of mindfulness to everything I do.
Sometimes it is lost and yes I struggle with it and fall off the path but I quickly realise that it feels strange to me and put myself back on it by reading a nice book from my personal wellbeing library or speaking to a friend who shares my vision for a world filled with contentment.
