Life just keeps getting more and more interesting, doesn’t it? Between the surge in COVID cases, ongoing uncertainty with how things will unfold, a turbulent and divisive political climate, and our efforts to just keep moving forward with our lives, life can feel quite overwhelming. Oh, and the holidays — a very different holiday season — is nearly upon us. <Deep breath>

How are you feeling — really feeling — these days? In this latest episode of the MRG Podcast, I share some honest thoughts on how things are going for me. Most importantly, I talk about the things that are helping me get through and move forward. It’s not easy, but we can do this. We can keep trying.

From pushing myself to “don’t think, just go” on my early-morning runs and sinking into a really good book, to finding some escape in a funny podcast or keep-you-guessing television show, this update show dishes out some fun, interesting, and thought-provoking motivation and inspiration. 

We would love to hear from you! Tell us what is helping you move through these challenging times. Leave a comment at the end of this post, or email us your story — we would love to share these stories on an upcoming podcast!
