Allow Others to Show Up for You with Dalijah Franklin

In a world where we are constantly being pulled in a million different directions, it's important to remember to allow others to show up for us. We can't do everything alone, and that's okay.

You'll be surprised how good it feels to let others show up for you.Join Dalijah as she discusses how to open up to our network of friends and family to support us from our struggles to our dreams.Propel Water sponsors today's episode, The only zero calorie, zero sugar fitness water with enough electrolytes to replace what is lost in sweat.Get em Goal: Allow someo
