About Contentment: Is it Really a Happy Thanksgiving??

It's Thanksgiving so I figured it would be very appropriate to blog about contentment. I mean, I was challenged this past week.

I was put in a position where I realized it was time for me to just take a stand. I decided I needed to let people know that I am seeking for a type of happiness that has nothing to do with how much money I make, how many friends I have, or whether or not I am married or have kids.

I mean...my life is far from the way I want it to be right now. But does that mean I am supposed to walk around being miserable all the time? I sure hope not but that is sometimes the impression I get from others.

I get the impression that if not everything is right in life that a person is supposedly supposed to be miserable and unhappy. I mean, financially speaking didn't we learn anything from this recession? I myself had a hard year and now I am appreciating the steady income I have now.

I mean, after all many people are still out of work. Those people who do have jobs or other source of income earned from freelance work or small business income should be very grateful. It is a miracle that people have their jobs right now in the first place.

So...anyway...all I can say is regardless of the fact that my life is not perfect I h ave learned one thing recently-particularly from this past recession which is still going on. Financially speaking, it is a miracle that any of us has work right nor it that anyone can find a job.

After all, the unemployment rate was up to 10% only a month ago, and this problem is still ongoing. All I can say is I can appreciate what I have because there are many people (believe it or not) way worse off than me even.
