Happiness Versus Contentment in The Desert
The question of happiness versus contentment has certainly been on my mind lately. Learn more in Happiness-Versus-Contentment-Bob Davis Podcast 1084.
High Fuel Prices
As a result I made a decision more than a year ago to restrict travel to the summer months.
And to hang out in the Arizona desert in the meantime.
As a result my life has been enriched by relationships and experiences I did not expect to have.
However adjusting to this temporarily stationary approach has not been easy for me.
Contentment By The Fire
Certainly the feeling of contentment is strong after a great meal by the campfire.
And a big cup of strong coffee helps too.
Does This Mean I Am Happy?
Therefore I wonder whether the feeling of contentment also means I am happy?
It’s a good question.
Especially these days.
Urge To Hit The Road
On the other hand the urge to hit the road again calls me from deep inside.
Slow Decline Of Fuel Prices
Meanwhile I wait as fuel prices begin to decline.
Long Way To Go Yet
We’re not all the way there yet though.
Above all they say this time of year features some of the darkest and depressing days.
In the same vein this shows up for me as frustration.
That is to say I am chomping at the bit to get started on the back roads again.
But sometimes the best thing to do is stick with a good plan.
To sum up these are difficult days for everyone.
However I don’t see any reason to change the plan.
Or my approach to how I plan what I do.
