Following on from my previous blog, and thank you for replies, but I'll carry on dieting for the now and buy a thicker jumper for the winter, LOL
Now this blog is about State of Mind........ I wondered if there's a difference between Happiness and Contentment?
When I was younger and my girls were growing up, we didn't have much money,looking back , I was, I think Happy, but not Content, as we had a future and looked forward to when we had the new car, the bigger house, the new curtains, washing machine etc. We were young and had come to England from Scotland for a new start, we felt the world was our oyster, work was plentiful and we had our health.
Now I am older,[much] my first husband dead and the other ... well let's not go there, why spoil a good blog.
I have pretty much what I need, the curtains , the car, washing machine etc, I could say I am content, but am I happy? I'm not so sure, my girls are now married and their children making their own way, I haven't got anything to work towards, and let's face it, nearer the end of my life rather than the beginning, don't get me wrong I'm not having a moan here, but just wondering if there is a difference and which is the better state of mind. Any thoughts?
