Being Content

Being content doesn't mean being complacent or stagnant in your life. Without truly discovering satisfaction and fulfillment at the moment, we have a tendency to constantly seek more and go from one goal to the next. It's a common misconception that contentment implies a lack of desire for more. This serves as a reminder that we may work to advance our growth and achievements while remaining content with where we are right now.

God wants us to be grateful for and enjoy what we have while remaining open to what the future may bring. We talk about our own journeys of seeking personal growth through self-discipline, prayer, and meditation and reaching a point where we are happy with where we are right now. We do, however, admit that anxiety attacks and feelings of inadequacy occasionally occur, making it crucial to constantly remind oneself that contentment and aspiration may coexist. By being connected to a sense of divine energy and remaining loyal to oneself, this practice promotes striking a balance between being content with the present and striving for more.

- Hi everyone, Sade here. This is your friendly reminder that being content does not mean being stagnant. We are constantly wanting more, we achieve one thing and then we're onto the next, without really being able to enjoy, because we're always wanting the next thing, and I feel like people get strange about contentment. Like oh, no, if I'm content, that means I don't want anymore. I'm here to remind you that's not true. God wants us to enjoy what he's given us while we're waiting for the next. So often we pray for things, we get them, and then we want more. This is your reminder to be content with what you have, to be content with what God has given you, and to rejoice in it while you're going to the next thing. I am at a very different place than I was last year. I prayed to be here, I strived to be here, I sought discipline, and answers, and meditation, and prayer, and I am now, where I want to be in my life, and sometimes I'm not grateful. Sometimes I feel nervous, or as you all know I have anxiety, so sometimes it creeps up that I'm not doing enough, and I have to remember that I am, and I need to learn to be content with what I have while I'm going for more. So this is also a reminder to myself, being content does not mean that you are stagnant. It's okay to want more and enjoy the present. Remember God loves you, be true to yourself, and stay in that divine energy.
