(vs. covetousness)

Realizing that true happiness does not depend on material conditions

To practice Contentment I will:

I believe that Grandma Moses said it best – “Life is what we make it. Always has been, always will be.” Looking for contentment in the wrong places causes us to be dissatisfied with our family, our abilities and our possessions. Several months ago we focused on a similar quality – Joy:Maintaining a good attitude, even when faced with unpleasant conditions. Contentment goes beyond just a cheerful reaction by requiring us to cultivate those relationships that bring contentment rather than acquiring more “stuff”.

This month, look to your relationships to make your life content and find true happiness.
