In The Loop with Andy Andrews, hosted by David Loy
On this week’s episode, I address the question of how to balance contentment and the things you want in life.
There are several things I want to do and want to have.
Before anything “goes up on our refrigerator,” so to speak, I see if it fits my criteria…
- Does this line up with my mission in life?
- Would it make my mission more vibrant and successful?
- Can this thing be a tool to help people?
We are very joyful whether we get to do something or not. There is an understanding that we don’t need certain things to feel fulfilled.
I am very aware of blessings beyond need.
- We have a house, but I have proven in my life that I only need a pier to sleep under.
- We have blessings beyond what we need cultivate a grateful spirit.
- Gratefulness will make you into a content person.
- In my quiet time, I will examine the things beyond what I need and determine if I should pursue them.
Gratefulness is right in the middle of this question. You’ve got to have a grateful spirit and understand that if your needs are met, everything else is gravy.
