Some people think of cows when they see that word, but for me getting to contentment isn't particularly simplistic or passive or easy.
I have managed to balance there for periods of time, even rather long ones.
But right now I'm not even close. And I've been upset with myself over that. But suddenly it occurred to me to wonder whether perhaps contentment shouldn't be one of my goals any more.
I'm not sure what should take its place or how to make the change to other goals, but I'm finding it an interesting notion, and kind of weird that I haven't put it into words before.
What is an important goal you're striving for and why?
