Learning to be content with where you are, what you are doing, what you have, who you are with and who you are is no easy task. Yet, it is a task worth doing; a task that can create tremendous change.
Because, when you accept who you are, when you stop criticizing yourself, when you let go of your insecurities, you clear a space for happiness, for contentment.
The key to contentment is developing the right mindset. You don’t need to wait until you’ve lost those extra pounds, until you made that extra money, or have increased your home’s square footage, or until you’ve had children or grandchildren; you can be happy right now, in this very moment.
You can be happy without any external changes or cues.
