Contentment … loving who we are and what we have instead of wanting what our neighbors, friends or family have.
It sounds simple enough, right?
Well, in a world where we can see our friends every accomplishment, vacation and home upgrade on social media 24/7, it’s tough not to get a little jealous from time to time.
To help us all enjoy more and covet less, I’ve invited NY Times Best Selling Author, Rachel Cruze, on the show today.
What are we covering?
Rachel and I chat about:
- Why social media is making it difficult for us to not be jealous
- How to become more content and grateful
- Strategies for keeping the fire alive in young marriages
As a mother to two young girls and a dedicated wife, Rachel’s family and financial perspective is perfect for this show.
