As you can see, I’m really behind…It’s been awhile since I’ve been this unmotivated to work on any of my goals. The beginning of 2018 has not been great for me, but I’m hoping that the weather breaks soon and helps me move into better days…I have been focusing on doing more for myself and I have started working on my music more and this has helped some. Hopefully things turn around soon!
