The biggest lesson I learned this year was the importance of release. I considered naming this blog let it go… but it didn’t quite describe the message I wanted to share. In fact, I have a bit of a distaste for the phrase “let it go.” It’s almost like telling someone to “get over it.” Which is definitely easier said than done.
