Thought of the Week - Being content with what we have & who we are

Quote: “To be content doesn’t mean you don’t desire more, it means you’re thankful for what you have and patient for what’s to come” – Tony Gaskin

 

Have you ever had a cat sit on your lap? I can imagine if you’re allergic to cats that wouldn’t be a good thing, but when a cat chooses to sit on your lap and you can stroke it, it’s one of the most relaxing feelings. Like everything in the world is okay and you feel really peacefully-happy in that moment. That is a feeling of content and its a feeling we can learn to have more of in our lives. One way of doing that is by being thankful for everything we already have. It makes us realise how lucky we already are.

 

Questions:

  1. What is your favourite possession?
  2. Why is it so special to you? If someone got it for you, why not say thank you to that person again.
  3. What is one thing you are thankful for today?
