"A contented mind is a perpetual feast." Do you think so?

I agree with you, but it is not easy for every one lol to reac this state. We all have our trials and tribulations and it all depends on how we glide through them . I try my best to handle every thing calmly and without panic so that way I can cope and keep my balance as when everything goes wrong it is so easy to be thrown off centre. I am taking a walk into the town to clear my head and refresh me, this is what I do when I am plagued with too many problems. This way, when I come back refreshed I can tackle them better and not get despondent or down.

I couldn't imagine myself being happy in my life having no peace of mind at all. It thus follow that to attain happines, one must have reach that stage that his mind be free from any troubles. Needless to say a happy man/woman like you and me possesses a fresh mind at all times where sweet smiles are generated freely.

Yeah, I quite agree with this saying. And also this is the goal I am pursuing all the time. Those people who are easily pleased are always feeling happy. however. we are not always easily pleased, don't you think so? When I was young, I was such an ambitious man. I thought I could do anything as well as other people. when I was doing something, I wanted it to be done perfectly. The great ambition I have, the greater pressure I had on my shoulders. Sometimes I could achieve my goal . sometimes I could not. gradually I felt so tired and I was always thinking about what the meaning of life is .With the increase of my age, I realize it is not the life I want to live. Life is so colourful and has varieties of aspects. why should we only focus on some thing that most people are focusing. We can change a way of thinking and enjoy life.That means we should feel contented about our life, cherish anattitude of gratitude towards life, and tresure everything that God gives us. by this way, we will have a peace of mind and find out lots of things we may ignore. Is this a kind of depravity? sometimes I asked myself.Is this a negative way of living? Frankly speaking, I have no idea about it until now. One more thing I want to say is: I do not want to push myself or to be pushed too hard.I will endeavour to do sth that is within my ability. Sth that is out of my ability, I will definitely give up.
