What does it mean to be satisfied in our life? Let us first take a look at the meaning of satisfaction in our Webster Dictionary.
Satisfaction-1. fulfillment of one’s wishes, expectations, or needs or the pleasure derived from this.
Daily Wisdom Words definition of contentment-1. making the very best of your life and appreciating all God and the universe has given you and being content with it. 2. making the very best of your situation in life no matter what the case may be, and appreciating what you do have, not what you don’t
Satisfaction in life is not always easy to find. Making the very best of your life and circumstances is the best way to strive towards satisfaction. Being grateful for the things in your life that you do have, verses what you wish you did have, also brings a great deal of satisfaction. Satisfaction can be found simply by counting your blessings instead of counting your feeling of emptiness.
We all have choices in life we can make. We can decide to be happy or sad. We can take our bad experiences and choose to learn from them, rather than place the value of our life on them, and this in itself will bring us the fringes of satisfaction. We can make the most of what we do have rather than what we don’t. The number one thing we can do to experience satisfaction in our lives is to have an “attitude of gratitude.”
This means appreciating all we have happen to us in either a positive or negative way and it truly is a choice. There is a voice inside our heads that speaks to us at all times called our conscience, and this is the voice that talks to us and advises us of what our thought process is going to be for any particular experience. We can change anything that involves habit forming in 14 to 21 days by setting new habits and this voice inside your head can be trained with new habits as well. You need to be conscious of this voice inside your head and change your self-talk to positive reactions to experiences rather than negative reactions to experiences. This will in turn change your life and if your goal is to be satisfied and fulfilled with your life, than this is what you WILL and CAN change by simply being aware of that voice and redirecting everything it says to more positive self-talk.
Thank you so much for reading about satisfaction today, and may the year 2019 be filled will more of it for you, not because of what happens, but because of the way you choose to internalize what happens to you.
Have a beautiful and blessed day.
