While I agree that we need to be able to embrace contentment with what we have, I think there also needs to be a balance. What I mean is we should not just settle for a day-to-day mundane, meaningless existence.
Yes, let there be contentment but let there also be purpose 🙂 Let us live each day with meaning, with hopes and dreams.
I think that as we find and embrace the meaning and purpose of our lives, going through the challenging seasons of our lives easier becomes a bit easier. We see a deeper purpose for any of our pains as well as our joys. And I think we are encouraged to live healthier in body, soul and spirit because we know we need whatever resources we have to fulfill our life’s purpose.
This is one song I’ve been listening lately which reminds me that we are made for more than ordinary lives – we are made not just to survive. I hope you get inspired as you listen to the song.
