The Value of Contentment

Recently I’ve been feeling this rush to get to places, do things, and be more productive. I think that’s a normal reaction for us to feel given the world we live in today. So the idea of “slowing down” feels a little foreign. With everything moving so fast, it seems like the natural thing is to keep up and speed up. But what if we did the opposite? What if we deliberately slowed down? What if finding joy in our lives comes from finding contentment in what we already have?

It’s a little scary to feel like you’re going to be left behind, and at the same time, what’s the use of hurrying up if you don’t know where you’re going? There might be more value in slowing down, finding joy in what we already have, and taking the courageous first step to a destination you want to go in.
