comfort /ˈkʌmfət/ noun – a state of physical ease and freedom from pain or constraint. When looking at the above definition of comfort you’d think that the meaning of life is the eternal search for that very thing. Everything about it sounds like the most tranquil place on earth. A place where you get showered with gummi bears while watching unicorns play catch with mermaids. Or, failing that, barbeques and ballgames.
Most of us have a tendency to spend at least some parts of our days worrying and stressing about situations that are beyond our control. And while doing so we waste time dwelling in unnecessary negativity that affects our health and how we interact with people around us.
Most of us have big aspirations for the future. If you’re like me, you are always looking for the next thing to work on or to get better at. Figuring out how to make your personal life better and how to have more impact in you professional life. Maybe you are in search for happiness and looking for it in perfection. But I think we are doing it wrong because contentment can be found in the attitude you have.
