This one was tricky. I think I've been gliding along without thinking too deeply about much, which has given me a fairly care-free approach in the last few weeks. Sometimes it is good to let go a little, I suppose. Also, how do you all fit everything you want to do into your days?
As ever, let me know if you're also taking stock (as discovered here).
