Setting Goals while living with Chronic Illness. My Guest Vlog appearance on Damian Washington's No Stress MS Vlog!

New Year Goals & Chronic Illness

This week I had the honor of being Damian Washington‘s guest on the No Stress MS Vlog!

Damian is an actor, rapper, nerd and all-around funny AF Multiple Sclerosis Advocate with a super cute dog too.

We talked about the importance of settings goals when you have a chronic illness and how to go about it in a way that isn’t going to make you end up feeling BAD about yourself either!

Here are some of our takeaway tips for setting goals while living with an unpredictable chronic illness like Multiple Sclerosis:

๐ŸŒŸBe Realistic
๐ŸŒŸPut Yourself at the Top of the List
๐ŸŒŸShow Up more often than not (however that looks for you on any given day)
๐ŸŒŸPIVOT when needed
๐ŸŒŸWrite your goals down, keep them top of mind and in your face
๐ŸŒŸBreak your goals down into small achievable tasks

And remember, you don’t have to wait for a New Year to change your goals!

I’d love to hear what your takeaways are, and WHAT LIGHTS YOU UP?!
Do Mantras help you as well?

You can't always choose what happens to you, but you can choose how you feel about it. Chronic illness sucks, but you can still find community and purpose!
