One of the things I am very thankful for is Contentment. A path to good living, a form of positivity and an act that will lead a person away from greediness.
There were times when I wanted more than what I have. My family led me away from it. Everytime I see my little boy's innocent face and smile, I see simplicity. And that gave me the determination to look and find possible ways in order to finally have it.
Contentment is a blessing for me. Few are given this state.
An answer to our human desires. Against the things that will give us endless discontentment. Everytime we get bored, we always look for something more. And the worse part, we just want it. We don't even need it.
I have become aware of this dilemma as I went on from being a teenager to now, being the light of my own family.
Why am I sharing these thoughts? This weekend, I found new realizations. Over a year ago, I was asking my husband to buy me a DSLR. 2 or 3 more months back, he bought me a new digital Camera.
His question: "why do you still want a camera, when I just bought you a new one". It took me months to finally convince him.
My reasons? I want to take good pictures with a better medium. Reasons justified.
Because now, I carry my DSLR more than my digital camera, even if its too heavy to bring around regularly. Yes, it is something I just wanted...and I promised that it is going to be my last. With this, I seeked for Contentment. I know that I will never be satisfied as long as the term "upgrade" is around. I can't tell that I already crossed the bridge to that path. Its better to say, I'm almost there...
As we were walking around the Cyberzone area of Megamall today, my husband and I both uttered, "do we need anything here?" We both smiled and went out of the area.
Actually we do needed something ( a new desktop), but since the current one we're using is still in an A-okay condition, yes we still don't need it.
I was just happy to finally see "us" naturally walk away.
Before, it was impossible for us to get anything by the end of the day. I am very honored to have given Contentment at this early stage as a Mother & Wife.
Look for it, find it. It might just be working its way towards your direction :)
Have a great week!
