I realize that contentment is a choice. I am consciously choosing contentment in each moment.
In observing the neighborhood cats, I notice how they are content with what is. Regardless of the external circumstances, cats always land on their feet. I notice that they take naps when they can. I observe that cats go with the flow.
I am choosing to be like a cat. I am adopting their contentment with what is. I am taking naps when I am tired. I am flexible with what is. I adapt to my surroundings.
I love to observe a cat when it is curled up in front of a fireplace. I notice that the cat looks content. I am choosing to be a contented cat.
I am applying these observations into my life. I am taking time to play. I am enjoying what is.
I recognize that being content is a state of mind. I allow my mind to be content with what is. I allow my emotions to be fine with what is. I am finding contentment in my life.
Distractions fail to derail me. I catch myself quickly when my ego thinks it needs to be in control. I return to my contentment.
I am finding it easier each time I bring myself back to my contentment. I am retraining my brain. I am retraining my emotions. I am retraining my ego.
Today, I am grateful for what the stray cats are teaching me. I admire their confidence and individuality. I am smiling now like a contented kitty. I practice remaining in this state of contentment, even when distractions abound.
- What can I do more of that will bring me into a state of contentment?
- How can I release old patterns and be more content with what is?
- What can I learn from cats that I want to apply to my life now?
