Creating Contentment


I changed my Instagram bio to “content creator, creating contentment” and it’s probably my favourite one so far 🌸

The first part is of course because I am happiest when i am creating good and inspiring content. I love working with words and visuals, and enjoy it when people benefit from the content created.

But i also love the word ‘content’ because it means ‘rasa cukup’. It doesn’t mean extreme joy or excitement – it just means that you feel that things are enough. And god, it is such a blessing to feel content ♥️ It is SUCH a blessing to feel content.

A rich person might not feel content despite all their fancy things, a smart student in a school might not feel content despite all their top grades, a gorgeous person might not feel content despite all their beauty.

I wanted to write ‘chasing contentment’ at first but that sounds exhausting. I think that contentment / rasa cukup comes from within. you are the one who chooses to CREATE your own contentment, and it is a constant daily effort. because – crap happens in life. And there will be periods of time when you feel intense anger or misery. But i pray that in the end, He guides you to create your own contentment despite the difficult situations you are put in.

“Sungguh ajaib dalam urusan orang Mukmin. Sesungguhnya setiap urusannya baginya ada kebaikan dan perkara ini tidak berlaku melainkan kepada orang Mukmin. Sekiranya dia diberi dengan sesuatu yang menggembirakan lalu dia bersyukur maka kebaikan baginya dan sekiranya apabila dia ditimpa kesusahan lalu dia bersabar maka kebaikan baginya.” (Riwayat Muslim)
