  In a world where we are told that we need more, a life of contentment is something that most people will never find. There are "voices" at every corner screaming that we aren't good enough and we don't have enough. What would life be like if you were in a place where you didn't feel the need to compare your life to someone else's? The truth of the matter is that there's always going to be someone richer, someone taller, someone prettier, someone smarter, someone more successful, etc.
I fully believe in bettering ourselves and fighting to achieve goals, but at some point in life wouldn't it be nice if we just lived and enjoyed it instead of running a rat race? What would it be like to sit back and feel satisfied and comfortable in yourself and in your place in life?  
We live in a consumer's world...in an all consuming country! What would the debt numbers look like if we were more thankful and did not NEED all the stuff??!!! Didn't need all the crap??! Didn't need the next new thing....didn't feel the need to get something newer, a something that's better than our neighbor's down the road?
 I believe that contentment isn't something that just happens. It's a constant work in progress. Think positively and practice being thankful. It's a choice!
