The Positives of Failing — Olivia Lucie Blake

Did you know there are positives in failing? I didn’t realise this until I failed something quite important to me. I needed to pass, but God said no, it’s not time yet. You need to learn what it feels like to fail. We all go through times in our lives when we pass or fail […]

Pointless Overthinking

Do you feel like the weight of responsibility is keeping you grounded? Or the sheer drag of life is forcing on the brakes?

Do you find it hard to muster the requisite lift and thrust to overcome these forces in life?

Of course, we’ve all been there. We’ve all had those days where everything has felt like one big drag, where the simple act of getting out of bed has felt like this herculean task.

Then something struck me. I thought, “Of course! Balance isn’t something youfind.It is something you have tomaintain– like a tightrope walker!”

  1. Don’t carry too much weight.
  2. Go at a steady pace.
  3. Don’t stop moving.
