The state of being content has for all the times been a general idea which aroused a sense of misunderstanding and uncertainty as per my beliefs of its meaning. I have never understood the basic reason as to what may induce someone to have this emotion, having missed the viewpoint which is essential to distinguish what it takes to be completely content. I have always thought that this would be a horrid feeling to be content and there was always a negative connotation attached to the word in my mind. But, I have realized my mistakes over time in the way I approached this subject. I came to realize that my ideas focused not only around contentment but instead the synonyms used for it like relaxation. My idea about relaxation was not much different from what majority of people used to believe in; palm trees and beaches had a soothing and relaxing impact on me. The mere thought of lingering around in a quiet place is the most calming time for me. It is true that the quiet and peace are the ideal circumstances for me and they perfectly align with my definition of contentment. It provides an individual with a sense of satisfaction, although its manifestation might be different but it results one to feel content in the best way possible.
