To be contented, but not complacent

Each one of us has come really far to be where we are today. Behind us lies a long and arduous journey.

Each one of us has much further to go. Ahead of us lies a long and arduous journey.

It can be a challenge to reconcile how despite having traveled so far, we still have miles to go. To be contented is to be grateful for how far we have come. To be complacent is to mistakenly think that we have already arrived.

Like food, water and air, growth is one of life’s essential requirements. To stagnate is to rot, decay and die.

Can you be satisfied with how far you have come, while looking forward to the adventurous journey ahead?

Human beings are works in progress that mistakenly think they’re finished. – Daniel Gilbert
