Overcoming the Hamster-wheel Syndrome - with Liëtte Smith


"Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her"

But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”   - Luke 10:41 & 42

a. "I expect the hotel room to look as nice as the picture."
b. "I expect to receive the promotion due to my recent performance,"
c. "I expect to be looked after because I am a victim of circumstance."
