How to find more contentment in your life.

   Contentment doesn't mean that you should eliminate your ambitions, settle for less than you deserve, or remain satisfied with your life in a dormant state. Nothing is wrong with pursuing your dreams and wanting better for yourself. However, in your quest for better, you should always remember anything that costs your peace of mind is too costly. 1. Be thankful for everything. One of the most profound biblical statements that I've read is from the Apostle Paul. ''I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.'' Philippians 4:11-13. Many of us are longing for contentment in our lives. Being grateful is a great way to start. Try to find at least one thi

 Every day that we are alive, we are presented with twenty-four hours. What we do with those hours is entirely up to us. We can either choose to spend them idly or invest them wisely. The next time you feel as though you aren't meeting your daily targets. Ask yourself, how am I using every twenty-four hours that I'm given? Below I'll share five useful tips to make the most of your day.  1. Make preparations from the night before.  Try not to clutter your mornings. It will make you exhausted the minute you reach the office. Clean your shoes the night before, prepare the outfit that you plan to wear, and put your wallet, purse, and keys where you can easily find them. Ensure that your work ID is in your bag. If you plan on taking lunch to work. Try to prepare the ingredients overnight. You could also prepare your sandwiches, fruits, or salads and refrigerate them in an air-tight container to retain freshness. This will save you a great deal of time in the morning. Especially

  Do you want to live a less tiresome life? Have you ever wondered why others are so vivacious and you're not? No worries, you aren't the only one. You can start with being kinder to yourself. Here are seven things that you can do. 1. Take breaks. Our bodies have a way to remind us to take a break. Don't ignore the signs! For me, when I'm sitting at my computer desk for long hours. I can feel my eyes starting to burn, and my fingers becoming numb. Sometimes, I realize that my feet are swollen and my back muscles are extremely tensed. Routinely, I would either get up and walk, elevate my legs, twinkle my fingers and toes, or just shut the computer down. Know when your body is calling for a break. It's not a machine,  even they get wear and tear. Give your body the break that it needs. It was never created to work continuously. Like a car that overheats. Your body and mind will become sick if you refuse to give them the break that they need. Whenever I take a break fr

What a tragedy to have life and not know what to do with it? I heard once that the richest place on earth is the cemetery.  It might sound ridiculous, but if you analyze it it's true. The grave has many talents that are no longer in use, and many that were never used throughout their time on earth. What is your purpose in life?  Every man both rich and poor must answer this question. They must know their purpose in life. When this life is over will your purpose be numbered among those who did nothing with their lives or those who died empty? There isn't anyone on earth who was created to have a life without meaning, but our lives will appear meaningless without us knowing our purpose in life.  You wonder why so many persons are just okay with the way that their lives are. You wonder why so many persons are okay with doing nothing valuable with the time that they are given each day. You wonder why so many persons have yet to find motivation in what they are currently doing or ev

  Who holds the key to your happiness? Where is the fate of your happiness resting? He doesn't make me happy. She doesn't make me happy. I'm just not happy. What is it that makes you happy? Does having money make you happy? Do your friends make you happy? Do your children make you happy? Does your job make you happy? Does your spouse make you happy? All these are external influences on your happiness. If any of these becomes the primary source of your happiness. You'll be devastated the moment any of them are removed from your life. In simpler terms, you would have lost the key to your happiness.  The primary source of your happiness has to come from within yourself. You have to be in control of your happiness. If you can't make yourself happy then no one else can. It's your responsibility to find out what is it that brings out the best in you? What is it that makes you smile?
