IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
“Contentment is natural wealth, luxury is artificial poverty.”
Contentment means being happy with what we already have in our lives, being satisfied with our possessions, status, or situation.
It’s being happy without trying to find fulfillment in acquiring more material possessions.
Without it, the road towards minimalism would be short-lived. Discontent is a big obstacle to fully thriving in a simple and happy life.
Contentment also comes with a great deal of freedom: to be who you are, enjoy who you are, and live the life you choose to live.
