I learnt a new emotion: “Contentment”


I am back from an outstanding conference in Zagreb on well-being, positive psychology and children “1st International Scientific Conference of the Department of Psychology at the Catholic University of Croatia“.


Contentment is when one feels that his/her current resources match or exceed the level of need (Shiota et al., 2006; p. 63). 

Contentment is when you savor life and all its contingencies and successes (Fredrickson, 1998).


… and there are many reasons.


1. This beautiful person and researcher, Professor Nansook Park. Director, Michigan Positive Psychology Center, she believes in people’s strengths and resources in a cross-cultural perspective. An inspiring person!


2. Beautiful people who organized this event, such as Barbara Brdovčak! No one has never written down my full name at the airport, as if I was a star!

3. The Cathedral of Zagreb….AWESOME! I felt overwhelmed (despite I was also tired as you can see..)
