Learning to be content

Here are three simple ways to practice contentment.

  1. Want what you have.

This is a basic gratitude practice. Don’t take your possessions for granted. Every day acknowledge what just one tool or object means to you and how it improves your life. Make a list of other things you are grateful for at the end of the day, and include thanksgiving moments in your prayers. Find your purpose in life, you have to know what sparks the light in you so that you in your own way can illuminate the world.

  1. Don’t make comparisons.

 

Many of us go through the day comparing our situation with another’s, and inevitably, it seems, we come up short, feeling either second-rate or deprived. “Do not compare yourself with anyone else, you spoil God’s curriculum.” Focus instead on what is unique about you — your God-given talents and gifts. Live the life that God has planned for you. Then whenever you fall into the comparisons trap, say to yourself. “Oh, there I go again, making silly comparisons.”

  1. Accept your imperfections and the “lacks” in your life.

Nobody is perfect, and few people get everything they want or even all they need. But we have been assured that none of this matters to God. God loves us as we are, faults and shortcomings included
