contentment

"Contentment comes from having a positive attitude. It means...
-expecting the best in everything - not the worst.
- remaining upbeat - even when you get beat up.
- seeing solutions in every problem - not problems in every solution.
- believing in yourself - even when others believe you've failed.
- holding on to hope - even when others say it's hopeless.
No matter what happens to you, a positive attitude comes from within. Your circumstances and your contentment are unrelated."

(John Maxwell, Failing Forward, p.67)
