555 Days Towards Level 9000: Day 69.
Time Awake: 9:35 a.m.
People noticed that during Wrestlemania weekend while I was away that I did not post any videos. I was aware of this, but found that I didn’t have any words during those days.
I was completely content with where I was and who I was with.
I thought about recording a video stating “I am content” and sitting silently for a few minutes (in hindsight, a GREAT idea), but decided against it. Instead, I went through the days being content.
Being content is something to strive for. It’s more real than being happy. People often claim to want happiness, but it’s a fleeting emotion. It’s a high that fades. The opposite, I suppose is the lows of being in the dumps.
But contentment stays. It flows. It indicates things being good. It reminds you that you are where you need to be at that moment.
Perhaps the reason that we as humans aren’t content more often is because we occupy so much of our time doing things we don’t want to do. Obligations. Not immersing ourselves in passion.
My goal, then, is to maximize contentment and shift the elements of my Life to make being content a reality.
