Truly Grounding

I know it’s cliche, but these really are uncertain and rocky times that we are living in. This podcast allows me to remember what is truly important, teaches me how to remain productive, and keeps me grounded regardless of the moving and unforeseeable factors in my life that I can’t control. Highly recommend.
