Wanting what you have instead of looking to others who have what you want. That is my definition of contentment.

Unfortunately most people have to lose something precious to realize how good they really had it all that time they spent wishing for something else.

I consider the things I had to lose to find out that I’d had what I wanted all along the biggest privilege of all.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
