Ako Kuya kuntento na ako kahit walang material things around me basta masaya ako kasama ang pamilya ko.

my idea of contentment does not necessary mean to be financially demanding. as long as all my kids are healthy, there is always food in their plates, and my salary commensurate to my hard work, I am already contented. The luxuries on the side are just bonuses, lol!

My idea of contentment in life is being hale and hearty (for me and my family). True to the saying that goes "Health is Wealth", indeed if you possess hoard of riches but you are not physically fit - you fail to enjoy the real essence of life.

And I don't believe materialism can give me physical comfort to its highest value. Possibly not for others but its not my cup of tea.

Happy TGIF Kuya Mel.

Hi Rose,
Kitang kita naman yun, Rose. Naging isang ulirang ina at asawa ka. Wala na sigurong mahihiling pa ang pamilya mo sa iyo. Just trust the Lord and He will provide all your needs. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Hi Naomi,
Yes, the secret of contentment is simplicity in life where one is thankful to God for all the blessings one receives. If we trust the Lord, He will always provide for all our needs. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Umma,
Wisely said. What's the point of being rich if you can't enjoy it because of failing health? Yes, there are so much more than just crass materialism. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Hi Niko,
Yes, contentment is a state of the mind. One may have all the material comforts in life but if one is not satisfied with his life he will keep on striving for more. Better to be content with what God has provided us. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

i agree with chubskulit..as long as nabubuhay at walang nasasaktan na ibang tao ay kuntento na ako sa buhay..ang mga taong gumagawa ng pagnanakaw o krimen para magkaroon ng pera o bagay ay hindi iyon kuntento sa buhay..kaya ginawa ay para makuntento..

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Arvin,
How right you are. Contentment is having a peaceful mind and you can sleep soundly at night knowing that you caused no harm to anybody. Simple lang ang buhay at hindi komplikado. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Thanks for the post. God Bless:)

You are really a good person who thinks first of your loved ones more than yourself. Your philosophy in life is simple yet very encompassing. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi MelCole,
By all means you can call me kuya and I will be happy for it. Yes, like a wonderful mommy, your contentment is to see your whole family happy. Your happiness is tied up with the happiness of your family. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.
