Is contentment a blessing?

Contentment- A state of peaceful happiness or satisfaction.

I asked a friend once, in all seriousness, if being content all the time made me boring. She is a high energy, competitive person..always striving, searching, reaching, complaining, planning.

Her life looks exhausting, but then again..maybe mine looks dull.

She is never 100% satisfied with anything…ever.

I am almost always satisfied even if things aren’t 100%.

To me, never being satisfied is akin to living in purgatory. To her, dissatisfaction is an energizing, motivating force that leads to ever greater (but never complete) fulfillment.

Maybe the world needs both our kind to run smoothly..?
