04 tmw your goals take the back burner

millennial moments pod logoEven when we’re passionate and driven about our goals, they somehow still manage to fall by the wayside. We simply cannot account for all the things that can or will happen in our lives, so we also should not hold ourselves responsible for unavoidable, or, let’s be honest, sometimes veeerrry avoidable, life events.

Today we talk about what happens when our goals take the back burner, why it’s okay, and how to get back on track without punishing yourself because life happens and there’s nothing we can do about it.

Thanks for Listening,
