In the age of content curation, I've learned a valuable lesson in my journey as a creator. It is better to be content than to be content. Let me break it down, friend.
Online content refers to any type of carefully selected media.
Gratitude, peacefulness, and satisfaction in life are the essence of contentment.
At times, it may seem simpler to showcase only the pleasing aspects of oneself for the purpose of gaining attention, rather than being truly satisfied with life. However, as I continue to evolve as a creator, I have chosen to focus on sharing my authentic path toward contentment instead of solely creating content that is appealing or trendy.
The worship song "Jireh" features the lyrics, "I will be content in every circumstance." Although it may not be easy to feel content in every situation, with practice and repetition, we can strive towards achieving contentment. Repeating these words even before we experience contentment can help establish it as a habit in our hearts, even during times when we don't necessarily "feel" content.
As someone who creates or consumes online content, I encourage you to avoid comparing your real life to someone else's curated posts. Instead, focus on finding genuine contentment in your own life. Don't get caught up in trying to impress others with your content. Concentrate on your unique journey towards contentment, and learn to appreciate the things that reflect your life and experiences. It's a much more rewarding approach than chasing after an unattainable fantasy.
"I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well-fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength." - Philippians 4:13
