The Choice To Be Content

I've travelled to enough different places in the world to know there are far more exciting and beautiful places to live than where we call home right now. But the beauty of home is that, no matter the scenery and level of activity, it's where we belong. And we can choose to see the world around us as dated and boring or unique and beautiful in its own way.

I like to dream about what it would be like to live in a big, bustling city or even in our quiet little hometown. Those places seem to have natural appeal and glamor without trying. But lately I've been thinking about where we live right now and the beauty and charm that I enjoy every day as I walk through our little neighborhood. 

I will never be completely satisfied with where I am and life will never be completely perfect unless I consciously CHOOSE to be content. I can look at what's wrong with the things around me or I can focus on what's right. I can dream my days away about where I think I would love to live or I can enjoy each day living right where I am and make it my dream. 

The difference is in what I choose to focus on. 

What about you, how do you strive for contentment in your life?
