Today, I’m sharing some personal reflections on dealing with change and getting out of a rut. The past 6 months, I’ve gone through, maybe more changes than ever in my entire life.

In this episode:
- why I really moved to Montreal after spending 6 years in New Brunswick
- on falling back into a depressive episode after nearly 3 years of being "recovered"

- why change is important to embrace, despite how scary it might be
- 4 tips for getting out of a slump
