Trying to be content
A few weeks ago a work colleague of the past 17 years died, very suddenly. It was blood poisoning and he was gone in the blink of an eye.
It was quite distressing and very hard to take in, god knows how his family coped at the time. My whole work closed for the day of his funeral and all the workers went.
The man who passed was an absolute gentleman, no one had a bad word to say about him. He never drank, smoked or even swore! He was a contented family man. He was at retirement age but wanted to keep working on to provide for his family. He just came to work and then went home. He was never off sick.
At his funeral his son told how he had the same mobile for the past 20 years and only had 5 contacts in it, he was due an upgrade years ago but was happy with what he had.
I'd like to be more like that, more content instead of wanting stuff and getting annoyed about my wages being spent on others apart from me.
