Awaken Your Spirit to Adventure...

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

~ John O'Donohue ~

Fight getting depressed over setbacks.

Deal with setbacks as positively as I can and try not to get depressed.
