how content are you?
    #14396198 - 05/03/11 09:15 PM (10 years, 9 days ago)

I feel that complacency is my greatest challenge. Just being content with the way things are instead of looking on ways to improve or change for the better. Now, enjoying the moment is most certainly important but I feel that when I am challenging myself I am the most happy in those moments. Similarly I think that reminiscing about how good things 'use to be' is a bad habit. Things change and adapting to change is essential to a good life i feel.

So PSP forum, how content are you guys with your current life?
If you're content let us know why. If you aren't content let us know what you are doing about it.

have a nice day :vaped:

Im very content, but that doesnt mean im not striving to do more or be better. Im content because I have found my own sense of inner peace that is immovable, infinite and untouched by outside circumstance. "Foundation for immortality"

You read any Marcus Aurelius or other stoics? I like their philosophy with regards to inner peace and outer action.

I bet you'd like the meditations. Not all of it I agree with but he has some real good jems in there. Boethus, eh? I'll keep my eyes open for a copy when i'm out and about.

I have a shitload of nice things, a good amount of drugs, and I'm in good shape. On top of that I'm on MXE right now so I feel pretty content.
