I’m not sure if I skipped a question or used the same number twice, but last week was 37 and next week in my draft is 40 so today has to be 39! Sorry 38, I’m not sure what happened to you…
What do I need to be content?
This is a hard question. What exactly does content mean? Like just enough to be happy but still want to change my situation? Or being at a place where I don’t want or need to change my situation? I’m going to go with the first because I think we should all strive for better.
To be content, I don’t need a lot of things:
- a place to live
- money to cover my expenses
- my laptop with a wifi connection
That’s basically it.
If I have a place to live that has heat in the winter, an open window in the summer, with a place to cook and shower, then I’ll be ok. It doesn’t have to be an amazing place.
If I have a job that provides me with enough money to pay my bills and buy food, then that’s a pretty great thing. I hate stressing over money. And I don’t like to spend on things I don’t need, so I don’t need a job that will pay me lots and lots of money.
My laptop! That’s my free time right there! Movies, TV shows, writing. All those things make me so happy.
So if I can have all three of those things, then I am content. It doesn’t mean that I won’t try to make things better, but I wouldn’t be miserable.
What about you? What do you need to be content?
