Happiness is a feeling, a response to something.
Happiness is conditional with external dependencies.
It is temporary, fleeting and an unstable foundation for wise decision-making.
Contentment, on the other hand, is a mindset decision.
Contentment is a resolve, a fixed perspective regardless of circumstances.
Contentment endures through trials, it lasts, and is stable despite external factors.
Pursue contentment and you’ll acquire grit, perseverance and peace.
Grand missions require contentment. Happiness is just the child’s play along the way.
