When you have truly forgiven yourself for the past mistakes and have learnt necessary lessons from them, you feel content. When you accept your weakness and began to overcome them you feel content. When you have learnt that this life is a path full of ups and downs then you feel content in keeping going ahead.
Contentment never comes from success, it comes from the realization that this life is a test and every test will make you better than before. Contentment comes, when you learn that the tests of life make you shinier and brighter and stronger by pruning and trimming you.
When you learn that your true success is staying strong in times of distress and failure, you feel content. When you can contain your sorrow and joy with same grace, you become content. You become content when you become strong. You become content when you win over your fears.
Contentment lies in following the divine structure of this universe ~ a perfect blend of sparkling colours and darkness one being the canvas for the other. Being content is being wise and ready to deal with whatever life throws at you. Being content is understanding your test and not comparing your life with others.
A monkey climbs tree everyday very effortlessly but for a rabbit it would be a huge success. When you see and live your life as a unique merger of circumstances and experiences you become – Content!
Content life is a blissful life. Content life is a free life.
