Content

Today I am grateful for my physical capabilities and some sweat and endorphins to start my day. It adds to my level of content and helps me release discontent.

CONTENT carries double meaning for me today. There is the content found in calm and peace that I feel when I keep a sane pace. This week has had some sane times and some less sane ones.

And then there is the content of my mind--which goes hand in hand with whether or not I feel content.

Too much content, a.k.a. a full mind, and too much editing and critique of said content, and peace is nowhere to be found.

So it is the balancing act of pausing, letting go of unnecessary thought content, replenishing ongoing gratitude, and repeating.  Such efforts increase the right kind of content.
