Unzipped and Discontent

I have two problems

The first problem is a pretty strange/serious problem to have. I have trouble remembering to zip my fly. This is a problem that I have had for awhile now and it isn't getting any better. I do not know why I have trouble with this but I do. The other day I went to buy a cell phone and I spent about 30 minutes talking to the cell phone sales man, walking around the store with him trying to choose a new phone. After I left the store I realized that my fly had been unzipped the ENTIRE time! Not just a little unzipped but full blown completely wide-open unzipped! It was one of those situations where I'm sure he didn't know what to do. You never want to make direct eye contact with an unzipped fly - I'm sure it was awkward for him. I have struggled with remembering to zip my fly for about a year now. I desperately want to remember to do this - but for some reason it seems to slip my mind ( I am being completely serious)

The second problem I have is that I have trouble with contentment. Everyday I want to live life to the fullest enjoying everyday, but I always seem to be discontent. I think this is something that I have always struggled with. I remember when I was in middle school my grandma gave me a notebook and told me to write down 3 things that I was thankful for every night. It is funny to go back through and read. One day I wrote down 1. hot dogs 2. Advil 3. my family.
It seems that discontentment is such an easy thing to let slip into our life. I don't want to focus on what I don't have in life right now but instead focus on what I do have, and find complete contentment in the moment.

My goals for November: 1. Remember to zip my fly
2. Be Content!

November is a good month to remember to be thankful. It's a little easier to feel grateful when you're eating delicious turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing! Mmmm, I'm hungry!!
