Historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., observes that our society is marked by “inextinguishable discontent.” Our quest is for better and what is next. We are never satisfied, never content, and envious of those who have what we have not attained or accumulated. What is needed is contentment. I’ve wrestled with being content my whole life. I’ve always wanting more and better. Through the years, I’ve come to the realization that the contented life is the secret of inward peace.
