As the chinese saying goes, "知足常乐", happiness lies in contentment, when we are content and grateful with what we have, then only we will be happy. If not, we will end up pursuing something that has no end, meanwhile forget to live our life with the ones we loved.
Being contented doesn't mean we stop pursuing excellence in each and every aspects of our lives, it just simply means that we are contented with what we have achieved so far after we have put in our best efforts, preparing ourselves for a better tomorrow.
I am grateful that i have a place to call home,
families that loved me dearly and friends that i can count on,
faculties and intellect to aid me in making wise decisions,
physical appearances with no imperfections so that i can contribute better to society,
feelings and emotions for me to feel what others are feelin',
I am grateful that i AM grateful and contented with my life.
So, how contented and grateful are you with your life?
