Talking OUT LOUD

Accepting Failure

Accepting Failure

Sometimes my life feels like I’m in a dream. I feel that I’m observing what I do and take it in through another perspective. Life, like everyone has experienced, has knocked me over more than once and every time I seem to get back up with an extra life lesson packed in my imaginary backpack.

All tools have been given to me; growing up in a privileged society I’ve had everything I could wish for and all opportunities have arisen. Why is it so hard to figure out who I am and what it is I want to achieve? Our modern society is over stimulating us with expectations giving our generation no room for failure, and yet we all continue to fail one way or another because at the end of the day we are just human.

What I’m trying to say is that we all have such an high expectation of one another and seem to like to watch each other fail. How does it feel when people watch you fail? I think it sucks ass to be very honest. But how would you feel to be welcomed in a community where your failure is not only acknowledged but accepted?

With OUT LOUD Studio I had no clue what I was doing and I just stormed my way into the world and ended up being embraced by so many people and small businesses. I’ve learned that failure is not frowned upon and to make something into a success you have to fail a bunch of times. And imagine success without failure, wouldn’t that feel too easy? While beforehand I was so busy with wanting to have it all figured out; that fact that I don’t have it figured out gives me so much more sense of direction. I’ve learned more about myself and embraced the flaws that make me ‘me’ and feel that there is enough room for failure.

Wow girl, you inspired me! I’m gonna be taking a few more steps and hopefully fail a bit, so I come out wiser!
