I am a bit overly determined sometimes. Of course, clearly, this is something I arrived with and NOT something I picked up along the way.
Sometimes I get myself into something I then realise I don't want to have got myself into and I get utterly befuddled. At such times I simply have to Let Go.
This can BE hard to DO. I know. It happens to me often. Still... I think it is a good skill to have, and to develop. Letting Go.
