So far

So far your first episode was awesome. Key points I took from this was: the harder you work the more rest and recovery is needed, happiness equals reality minus expectations, the lord uses us to deliver his message not as just a vessel but as a filter through human means. Those are my own words / interpretations of the discussion of course.

Thanks for the guidance and I look forward to episode 2.
