Losing Someone You Love

This is one of my favorite songs to listen especially when I am alone, or at night, or whenever I feel incomplete. It’s written by  the American singer-songwriter, Jenn Bostic, which is composed for her father who died when she was a little girl. The song is released in 2012.

Let It Go…

“Life becomes easier when you let go of the unneeded stress. If it’s out of your control, don’t let it worry you.”
I guess stress is a part of growing up. Life becomes harder because of stress that comes up along with our problems, our trials. But bear in mind that it’s how you understand the situation and manage it.
