A Year of Practicing Contentment


I am a DIY philosopher. My entire life, physically and mentally,  has been DIY.  I’ve been making up ways to survive since childhood.  I gave a traditional life a try it was a big enough disaster to make the news.  I made up rules as I went along single parenting my son and daughter.  And here I am, continuing my personal evolution.  I’ve been choosing a word, a concept, to incorporate into my life for several years.  Sometimes I’m just amazing and other times I learn by being a real failure.  So it goes. It started with simplify and has moved through compassion, hope, comfort and 2017-profilearrived at practicing contentment.
