Happiness versus Contentment

If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands!

If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands!

If you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it. If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands, stomp your feet, and then let loose in general.

What is difference between being happy and being content?

Is it one and the same? Or different?

Happiness is favored by fortune, delighted or pleased over a particular thing.

Most people are happy most of the time. Other times are taken up by being unhappy.

What makes people unhappy? A variety of things. Stuff that doesn’t sit well with them. Failure to achieve their heart’s desire. Poor choices. Indecisions. Someone doesn’t obey them. Or doesn’t take their advice. Unhappiness can stem from a myriad of stuff.

But in all things, you are the one who decides whether you’re happy or sad. You, and you alone.

Contentment is satisfied with what one has or is.

Many people are also content with their life. They don’t see a need to improve it or build upon it. They are content with what they have, where they want to go, and how they’re going to get there. For them, life is a bowl of cherries and they don’t see any pits in the bottom of the bowl nor do they discover any pits in their fruit.

They are satisfied with what they have and see no need to make lots of improvement to themselves or their lives. To them, their life is just fine the way it’s going and are content to let their life remain that way.

Happiness vs. Contentment

So, which one are you? Happy? or Content?

I’m happy, but I’m also content is what I most often hear from people. I take satisfaction in what I’m doing, but I’m also happy, take pleasure in what I’m doing and making no plans to change it.

Does it have to be one or the other?

Can’t a person be both? Happy and Content?

I don’t see why not. Just make sure that you made the final decision on how it’s going to be.

Yes, you’re going to change your mind. Plenty of times. That’s what you’re suppose to do. Keep changing. Keep toning. Keep refining until you’ve reached that spot where it makes sense to you.

One Dad told me he’s content. He has reached his financial goal in life. His wife and family are growing and blossoming. He has no fears of the present or the future.

Which are you? Or are you both? Happy & Content.

If you’re happy and content, stomp your feet!

If you’re happy and content, stomp your feet!

If you’re happy and content and you really want to show it, if you’re happy and content stomp your feet!

Until next time… ,
