What about contentment?

On one quiet Saturday morning...not so long ago, I sat quietly at home and stared blanks in my living room.  Most of us live through life haphazardly.  If I may, we keep chasing from one dream to another, from our first car to more luxurious selections, from a humble home to a big house.  And yet, at each achievement there is no contentment.  The absence of that element makes me stop living in the present. 

In recent years I realise I learnt to be contented and this new found word in my dictionary has given me lots of peace and calmness.  By being contented, I re-learn to appreciate everyday and everyone around me.
