Memories vs Contentment

Today I’m going to be talking about happiness vs memories and why you may not be able to have both at the same time. This is taken from an article I found online and found really interesting.

The article gives different ways to create good memories and live a fulfilling life. I won’t steal it and write it here, but feel free to check the link above or listen to me talk about it in the episode.
