I didn't have time to iron the t shirt I wanted to wear so I thought 'OK I'll be content wearing the one I wore yesterday.'
I just missed a ferry - by seconds - and thought 'OK I'll just be content sitting here while I'm waiting for the next one.'
Finding my thoughts rushing off at tangents on what I mightdo/will do/should do (a frequent occurrence) I remembered, and thought 'but I'll just be content with what I'm doing now, for the moment.'
Just by saying 'I'll be content' I found that I was content, and guess what?
Life just got simpler!
....thanks for that phrase Julia - I find myself using it all the time!
