So a completely contented soul is pretty hard to achieve. But I think that right now I'm pretty close.
I'm not euphoric. I'm not overly happy. I'm not excited or even anticipating some great event. But I'm content.
What is contentedness, anyway? The dictionary tells me the following:
That pretty much sums it up, I think. Right now, I'm totally psyched with life. Even though my foot is asleep and my family is having major crises all over the place*. Even though all that is happening, I have this odd sense of calm and happiness.
I'm pretty confused... but I'm not about to question it.
Is this what you feel like in Heaven?
I know this song's lyrics are pretty much the opposite of contentedness, but it has a soothing beat and melody. And it's stuck in my head. So listen up! (Don't worry, it's the clean version.)
*Please pray for my family. My dad has hurt his back badly and is home from work. My mom is in Florida playing nurse to my great-grandmother while her husband is having surgery in the hospital. My grandmother has been living with her boyfriend for several years, and he just proposed to her on Monday... but he's being treated for cancer at the moment and we don't know how bad it is yet.
PS: It is a few hours later and I am definitely *not* content right now! I added money into my iTunes account, and that was fine, but now when I try to purchase a song, it says "We could not complete your iTunes store request. The requested resource was not found. There is an error with the iTunes store. Please try again later."
Ack! Is anyone else having this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it?
Help! I need my music!
