Life summary ✨

March 2019

I have always had an excessive fear of failure. Although I have tried my best to work hard to gain the best result, in striving to do so, I have come to the dangerous conclusion that ‘I must NEVER fail’. Failure, however, is unavoidable. Failure, just like our ability to breathe, makes us HUMAN. So, living a life in an effort to avoid failure is not only torturous but impossible. It is so important that we realize that the process of failing is not bad. However, what we associate with our personal failure can be detrimental to both our physical and emotional health. If we automatically associate failure with our inability to succeed, it will hurt us. However, if we come to terms with the fact that failure, in any form, in any context, is human and not a fixed state, we not only give ourselves room to grow but the eventual opportunity to succeed. If we fail it does not mean that we can’t succeed. If your classmate knows all the answers and you don’t, it does not mean that you are dumb. If your colleague seems to be breezing though work and you are stressed as hell, it does not mean you are not good. After a weekend that has challenged me, that has given rise to feelings of failure, I desperately looked to the internet for emotional support. What I found was a beautiful ted talk that inspired me to write this, that allowed me to learn a great lesson in regards to failure. If you have a spare 17.24 mins, Check it out... especially if you need a little pick me up! As we all experience failure, we simultaneously deserve to know that we can overcome it! Look up ‘How to practice emotional first aid by Guy Winch’

She’s my lifeline! Been going through my fair share of anxiety lately and at times I feel like I can’t cope... but with support and plenty of discussion (s/o @stefanialavieowen and @loloowen ) I manage to get through! Many of us experience this sadness and stress but when we talk about it at least some of it can be alleviated. Building a community and a safe space is so important in the discussion of mental health and something that I am extremely passionate about. In light of this @stefanialavieowen and I have put together a little video so we can start an uplifting conversation!! For anyone who is interested in watching check out the link in my bio 🎉🎉🎉 p.s @loloowen we miss you so so much xxx

Thank you to @stefanialavieowen for sharing your space and giving me this awesome book. Here's a little excerpt: "Move lightly despite your heavy burdens, rest easier with your greatest fears, laugh at your tears as you cry them" - Mark Manson.
