in Others+Miscelleneous by 2 8 27
The way only way you can be contented with the little you have in life is for you to have your eyes fixed on things that are above rather than things that are earthly. 

Stop comparing yourself to others and give credit to yourself even in the little things that you get to accomplish :)

I know you from other sites and I always think how positive you sound in your posts. When I am feeling dissatisfied with my life I think of all the people living in extreme poverty in third world countries, those living in war zones or all those in poor health living in pain and I realise how lucky I am to have a roof over my head, food on the table, good health and a family who love me. Things could be so much worse.

It's easy to get disillusioned with life when it doesn't seem to be moving fast enough but life is a journey and when I look back I can see how far I've travelled even when it didn't feel like it sometimes. I'm sure it will be the same for you and you have many good things to come :)

When you need to be satisfied and feel happy for what you have .The first thing you need to do is to pray to God and feel blessed that you are blessed to have good family.We don't know what other people are going through their life .We all have problems but when we compare with others life our life will give us the feel we have better life than others.Most of the people don't even have food to eat.So we can stay happy for atleast that we have .Always try to be positive .

That is true. I need to thank God for many things in my life. I should also learn to be positive in life.

First, it starts by knowing who you are and how your life is.Once you realise who you are then thats where you start from knowing yourself.

Appreciate what you have and how much you've achieved so far.If you have a goal then start working towards it till you achieve.In case you haven't reached your goal, then keep working smart towards it.

Accept the fact that you cannot change anything in yourself.

Yeah that is so true dear. Self acceptance can change everything because once you accept who you are, you believe that you can achieve anything.

Accepting is the epitome of everything.If you accept your status and the little you can afford you won't waste your precious time comparing yourself with other people. Always appreciate your efforts, work extra hard and com up with new techniques to acquire more wealth. Am sure within no time you'll be smiling and you'll afford more than even your counterparts.

Contentment is a thing of the mind, you have to first determined in your heart and work towards it, contentment is a form of dissociation from certain things and activities that will push you outside the boundary of contentment, this includes looking for things beyond your means.
