I have that heavy feeling that comes from not feeling on top form; the overwhelming feeling one gets with all the responsibilities of life and all that life brings. From having no support, wishing life felt easier, knowing things would have come easier, knowing things would …

Lessons & mistakes

25 Apr

I only take an interest in lessons. Mistakes are immaterial. We need to understand our lessons of those mistakes, because without understanding our lesson, behind the mistakes we’ll only go on to create more mistakes, either through making the same mistake or …
