    when to stop. If a discussion clearly isn't going to go anywhere, it's best to leave a final reiteration of your points and leave. At least the individuals involved in this disagreement remained civil. :) I can respect them for that! I don't respect their opinions and lack of...

    Me and my girlfriend have just spoken openly

    Times Like This. . .

    Times like this, when I feel like not talking or just being quiet, I feel I am content. Till I feel I need to say something and prove myself, I'll remain content.

    I am just so happy to be alive.

    ....and to have a loving family, a warm home, and a bed to sleep in. All I need are some more close friends that I can talk to. Just remember.......whatever situation you are going through....I'm here for you.....and I care. :)

    I am content... This is not a common feeling

    for me. Mainly because I tend to be anxious and I worry too much. Recently things have been lovely. I am outside in my backyard, in my pool, listening to classic rock radio, my hubby is inside enjoying what I believe is a college football game, my kids are hanging with their...

    I'm feeling content about my life.

    There would be many reasons that I wouldn't be happy. No job, no career, no partner, not much friends. Seem like a few big reasons to not be happy about life. But on the other hand, what I do have, a happy warm family, a nice house to live in, a caring mom and a lovely son...

    I can say it truthfully now. It's like all my worries have just floated away and I can finally breathe without faltering. I don't think I've honestly been content in months, even years perhaps, but tonight, I think I really am. Content with myself, with everything's that...

    Embracing Contentment

    "I've learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I'm just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I've found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, whatever I am, I can make it...
