The Advantages of Contentment

One December morning in 2013, when I took the children to school, the thermometer showed 7°C / 45°F. One of my daughters complained, how cold it was. I told her, that it’s December and for December it’s pretty warm, where we live. At this time of the year, it could be -7°C / 19°F as well, therefore I am very content. I tried to teach her, that a level of contentment can make life much easier now and in future. I must admit, I wasn’t very successful. Hopefully she will remember our conversation some day and adjust her mindset.

What does contentment do and how can you benefit?

The Advantages of ContentmentWhen do you feel better? When you are content or when you are complaining? Being content, even if the situation isn’t 100% ideal, will help you feel better and will make you happier. It will help you accept the situation and make the best of it. This emotional state will reflect on the people surrounding you and even on those, you are dealing with online and on the phone.

Think about it: If you could choose between two people to do business with, who would be your favourite? Someone, who is always complaining or at least grumpy, or someone, who is always smiling and cheerful and has a positive attitude? I’m sure, the latter would be your favourite.

Here is a challenge for you: Next time, when things go wrong or are less than perfect, actively choose not to complain about them. Especially, if there isn’t much, you can do about it. Look at them from a positive angle and pay attention, how this attitude makes you feel. If you practice this behaviour consistently over a period of time, I am sure, your whole attitude will become much more positive.

Does this mean, you should always settle for less? Certainly not. If something needs to be changed and if there is a chance, you can do it, I encourage you to go for it. Do it cheerfully with a positive attitude. But if it can’t be changed, such as weather conditions, cheerfully accept it – without any complaint.

Let me know, how you feel about this topic.

    Four-player multiplayer is an option on all courses in Course World in Super Mario Maker 2, but that only works if they’re all present or on a system link. Super Mario Maker 2 courses are also more diversely designed, such as puzzles or auto-playing levels, as opposed to racing to the flagpole or completing a course objective, like collecting 99 coins. ☰ In Course World, you can enjoy multiplayer with other players from around the world! Super Mario Maker 2 is set to release in just a few weeks on Friday, June 28, 2019. We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for more news on the game, and as soon as we know when the online-play-with-friends update has a release date, we’ll fill you in. So don’t worry Mario Maker fans. You will indeed be able to play the game online with friends at some point in the future.
    Playing around with physics is always fun in a game like this and I get a real kick out of putting things in place to try and create some kind of chain reaction of chaos! There are some mini-games that you can play around with and these are ok, they are not the most exciting mini-games, but you can level up which will then unlock more stuff for you. They defend, they attack, and they tackle from the back! You can also check our list of best unblocked websites with games for other options. According to the Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA), male Ragdolls typically weigh between 15 and 20 pounds, and females between 10 and 15 pounds. That makes them slightly larger than other feline heavyweights like the Maine Coon, which can weigh up to 18 pounds, and the Norwegian Forest Cat, which can weigh up to 16 pounds.
