Learning to Let Go

Recently, something came to my attention. Despite my best efforts to move forward I’m still depressed and holding myself back because I simply can not let go of the fact that I failed university.

This way I can keep this blog going and also keep my stress levels down while I work on getting better.

I enjoy doing this and I don’t want this blog to die so I’ll see you all in January with fresh ideas and better health.
