Contentment. Reblogged an awesome Post

So a friend of mine posted up something the other day about her experiences and a lot of it touched on contentment. Remember my entry about how “speaking kills”, and how sometimes being still is the best way to experience life? Yeah, well sometimes over thinking things and engaging in unnecessary self-talk can lead to discontentment. In context with my friend’s situation (homesickness and learning to be content where she is), she puts it this way:

“It’s about being content with where you are. I think its OK to miss any place where you aren’t. I think its OK to want to be with the people you love, but that said, don’t let that take over your life to the extent that you miss out on what is right outside your door.”

In other words, being consumed by where you AREN’T, literally or metaphorically can distract you from the beauty you can encounter right where you are. Without further ado, here is her blog entry:


The Death or Life of Your Sanity Depends on This

If you believe your negative thoughts supply you with life like the breath, you will be tossed to and fro.

If you believe you supply your sanity with life through the extermination of negative thoughts with every breath you take, you will toss defeat to and fro.

Observe Your whole self and take command.

Find your Purpose in a Blood Cell

Sounds crazy right?

Today I decided to do a video on this:

I was browsing some blogs the other day and, to quote in their words exactly, i found questions on purpose posed. The following quote is from the blog “The Writer’s Bay”..The entry was called “Imperfect Circle:”

“So I think a more apt question would be, what is the meaning of your life? Well, lets take it back, break it down to its roots. Meaning. What does it mean to have meaning? How do you know something has meaning? So many people spend their entire lives trying make their lives have meaning. Perhaps the reason that so many people never find it is because they don’t know what hat meaning is. Perhaps we can pinpoint what the meaning of a thing is, if we first determine what it isn’t.”
