Comfortable or Contentment

image

What’s the difference between comfortable and contentment?  Is there a difference? I was part of a conversation this morning and when I said; “comfortable” the person I was speaking to didn’t like the word choice so I asked; “Is ‘contentment’ better?” and she said; “yes.”

Since the conversation I’ve been reflecting on the two words and the meaning we associate with both. Comfortable, for me, is to be at rest, not striving but satisfied with life or certain circumstances.
Contentment is to be accepting, non-judgemental, allowing life and events to unfold with a deep trust the path will lead us in the best direction for our lives.

As I look at my understanding of the two words I believe I would rather be content than live in comfort.  Being content I can still rest in acceptance, not see life as a competition and be satisfied in all things and seasons.
