Learning life skills is not necessarily for people who have problems but it is beneficial to any person who wishes to improve their lives by doing worthwhile things, overcome challenges or get some guidance on their path of personal growth.

Letting Go of Who You 'Should' Be Release the Pressure This is something that I struggle with a lot. So maybe I’m not the “expert” that should be writing about this topic. But considering that the whole point of this article is to let go of who and what you think you should be, I might just be the right person for the job. Because I get you, I’ve been there and understand the frustration of feeling like you don’t measure up and know what it feels like to constantly compare yourself to others.

This is a story of how a horse brought me back to connection. A wonderful highlight in my life. A brush with nature, unexpectedly revealing a side of myself thought to have been lost forever. This is my tribute to nature, to softness and a grey horse.
