This week as we focus on contentment we’ll be taking a look at a blog about contentment from a known minimalist. Each day we’ll venture into another way in which we can develop and encourage our own contentment.
- Become grateful. It is impossible to develop contentment without gratitude – they are inseparable. And a grateful person is one who has learned to focus on the good things in their life, not the things that they lack. When you begin to question what you have to be grateful for, just start making a list – a literal list of all the good things in your life. Don’t worry about finishing, you don’t need to. The simple discipline of beginning the exercise will undoubtedly shift your focus back to the many good things you already have.
