    Yes, have definitely gone through a some life events that have shifted my perspective. The biggest takeaway from these experiences is to actively try to enjoy/accept the current experience —not compare it to a past version of myself or hold it to a future expectation. Love all of your tips. Great post!

    Great post, BeThree – you will never regret taking more time to spend with your parents.

    As a people-pleaser who has a tough time turning down offers of participation, I can understand how tough it can be to call it after prolonged resuscitation of a friendship that’s passed. I’d echo Dr. McFrugal on the power of being able to say no. Joan Didion wrote an essay on how her best work came when she pared down her commitments significantly to the essentials.

    Your tips in navigating life changes are valuable. #2 reminds me of a chapter in Essentialism titled something like “How to say no gracefully”. It’s a powerful thing. We should have to power to say no to anything unimportant in our life. Do only things that matter!
    #5 is important too. Self-care is becoming a big thing and for good reason. People need to take the time to take care of themselves. Mental health, wellness and overall wellbeing is deteriorating in a lot of people, especially people in our profession. We need to take care of ourselves so that we can effectively take care of others.
