#wwydWednesday: Being Happy vs Being Content

This week’s #wwyd is a topic most of us is struggling with. It can be in our relationships, jobs, and/or life in general. I want you to be completely honest with yourself when reading this post. 

How many people would agree with this statement? When we go into work we are already thinking about getting off before we go in.  

What about this statement? I’ve been with him/her for so long they are use to what I always do. So why change it up now!

Those two statements are examples of being content. We confuse being content with being happy and it’s not that. We are just getting by and saying that’s okay. 

As kids we all had dreams of being successful and marrying the person of our dreams. As we got older we just took what came our way and stopped looking for more. Why is that? Are we scared to leave what is comfortable to us? Are we scared to try something new? I’m not saying leave your current relationship but if you want more why settle for less, SPEAK UP! That goes for your job too. You are the one walking in your shoes. You have to wake up in the morning and clock in and out of your job. You have to look at the other person everyday. You have to look in the mirror. Can you look in the mirror and say out loud you are happy in your relationship, job, and/or life? Did you pause? You just answered without saying anything. You are being content with yourself. You are shorting yourself out of happiness. I know I can do better and I’m working to change my situation. We need to admit to ourselves we are content and focus on what makes us happy. 

The definition of happy is to be delighted, pleased, or glad, as over a particular thing. 

Are you delighted everytime you see that special someone even when you get into an agreement? 

Are you glad to have the job that you have? 

Are you pleased at just being you? 

Can you honestly say you are happy? If so I’m happy for you because everyone is waiting to get to that level. Some people never will because they are satified at being content. 

I hope you enjoyed this #wwydWednesday! Stay happy y’all. 

Sincerely, Courtney Rene
