I would say that I am pretty content with my life. I like where I live and the people that I live around and I'm ok with my personality.
Most wisdom calls us to be content - to be content with our station in life, to be content with our loved ones, to be content with ourselves. But, I was thinking about it today and the world does not change through contentment. At least it takes a stirring of hearts or a dislike of something to invoke a change.
So, my question is: Where is the balance between contentment and the unrest that creates change? If we are to be content, would that not be a bland life? Would people create things that are better if they are truly content?
