#56: Sara Allen (my mom!) talks about contentment and reminds us to be grateful for a "normal" day
The practice of contentment is a gift.
There will be hard times, but it's important to enjoy the good times
A normal day without drama can be a gift
There will be seasons in life without a lot of "me time"
Ask yourself if you'll later regret giving so much of yourself to your work
Your strength (like work ethic) can also be a weakness (working even when your body is breaking down and suffering).
You don't have to be goal-oriented, you can live in the present and be grateful for "normal" days.
Be anxious for nothing (Phil 4:6-7).
Connecting with a higher power like God will make everything in your life feel more manageable.
Pray about everything and don't be anxious
God is the best counselor, doctor, real-estate agent, wedding planner etc (in other words, rely on God instead of being anxious)
The best self-help book is the Bible according to my mom
