You Don’t Have Enough Time to Learn? (Ep. 79)

Do you feel frustrated on a daily basis that you don’t have more time to learn the Irish language?

Maybe it’s not Irish Gaelic, maybe it’s other things that you set up your expectations to do, but it’s not a good enough reason to not spend any time on the things you feel passionate about.

This Bitesize Irish Gaelic Podcast episode is focused on those inner obstacles we create and convince ourselves that something is true when it might not be the case.
