Happiness & contentment

Few things are more challenging to me than to simply be content and happy with who I am, what I have, the things I do, the person I am in the social-economic-personal-familial context I live in.

Here’s a great quote from Garrison Keillor that I saw today:

Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted but getting what you have, which you may be smart enough to see is what you would have wanted if you didn’t have it.

The exact rendering is apocryphal, but appropriate. And the sentiment is bang-on.
