We are constantly striving; striving for the next degree, the job promotion, or to be better than our neighbor/sibling/co-worker. Contentment is not easily found in a culture that consistently tells you that you need to be reaching that next level in order to find fulfillment. However, if there’s one thing I have learned in my 24 years on this earth, it’s that this race is unending and tiring.

Think about setting your goals toward happiness and contentment in your near future, and see what your surrounding decisions/career choices/relationships look like.
