where is the tuner?

is discontentment the same as unhappiness?

well, atleast the thesaurus seems to suggest so.
doesn't being discontent just mean that you yearn for more? isn't that allowed? how does it imply that you are unhappy with what is?
maybe its when you become irritated becoz u are not there...or you have no frigging clue how to get there - but even then, unhappy is too strong a word. it just feels incorrect.


am i being irrational here? or just plain stubborn? maybe obvious is a relative term as well?
whatever it is, it aint good - coz i can feel all the negative energy.


but then...is discontentment all that bad? isnt it - atleast sometimes - the same as necessity? or it becomes that. atleast sometimes.
guess what really matters is what you end up doing about it. maybe the clarity will come then?


the mind is racing. all the time. its like fighting yourself to stay sane - atleast make half sense out of it all.
maybe the thesauruses aren't good enuff. just maybe.

not a very good start to the new year then?

and i feel discontentment is only human. we strive for more don't we? we always do.

relax, take it easy. count your blessings and take a look at the BIG picture.
to quote Tyler Durden " Let things that don't matter, truly slide"

Happy New Year!

I don't know if discontentment = unhappiness, what I do know is that it's not a bad thing to be discontent. It merely means my wants are different, quantitatively or qualitatively and I see nothing wrong in having those. If I am unhappy, I will strive for happiness and do something to get it. I may be not so happy till then, but when I get there, I will be. Also, I don't think I can force myself to be content or for that matter discontent in situations where others may be like that. My thresh-hold maybe different and I don't want to make an effort to generalise/categorise or compare it.

Hey..came across your blog..found your last post thought provoking and took the liberty of putting down something here. hope its okay.
