Especially as we’re navigating something totally new. But when it comes to our emotional wellness, these questions also signal an opportunity: To take stock of our lives in a different way and practice the art of contentment. Choosing to live from a place of ease and rest, while acknowledging you needn’t possess anything more in order to live that way.
