Content vs. discontent. Satisfied or dissatisfied.
We should never be content or satisfied with where we are in life. Always learning, looking to improve yourself and your quality of life. Growing into better character, better intelligence, better work ethic… Never stop moving, pushing yourself harder and harder until you see change take place, and then after the change takes place start reaching for the next level. You’re never done, never resting, always seeking.
We should be content and happy with where we are. Recognizing how good we have it, satisfied with how good our lives are. Understand that even in the midst of difficulty, you are in a place that is far more blessed than millions of others. Take joy and be at peace with your life, look around you, take a deep breath, and be thankful for all that you have.
It’s not either/or.
Have balance between the two, you will need both.
