Some days go as planned, other days don’t. Sometimes amazing things happen out of the blue, other times disappointed strikes you down when you least expect it.

There is so much in our day we can’t control. What worked yesterday might not work tomorrow. So at the end of each day, if you can find satisfaction in where you are, the contentment you feel that evening will fuel you to get up and do it all over again the next morning.

To be content: Let yourself be satisfied at the end of the day whether your expectations were met or not.
