Living Abundantly with Contentment

Yesterday I gave a lot of thought about this past month. I realize need to do several things that will clearly improve my health so I am committed to do them starting today. 
The main thing that will link all my efforts (health, stress management, etc) together is found in the word "contentment." Here's what the Bible says about it:
"Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth." 1 Timothy 6:6 (NLT)
There are other translations that say that godliness with contentment brings great profit or gain. 
These are my treasures, I am thankful!
I am searching for contentment is so that when I look back at this season of life, I will have no regrets. I want to live abundantly in this moment, with contentment. I believe that contentment is also a form of thanksgiving. When I am content, I am saying, "God I am thankful for the amazing blessings you have provided for me. I am really satisfied with this life You gave me." How happier would life be if I had contentment and thanksgiving as goals for my day?
• Now I ask you, what areas of your life lack contentment? How do you get to happy?
