Flowerhood: Episode #10 Reframe Failure and some thoughts on Consumption
After taking a couple of weeks away from the podcast, I’ve had some time to reflect on my own perceptions and opinions surrounding failure. It’s an interesting one, as taking a break away from something I really love doing should never be seen as a personal loss. However, it’s brought up a lot of thoughts on how I view myself when I do feel like I’ve quote, unquote, failed.
In today’s episode, I want to share my advice on how we can all reframe these concepts in our minds and ‘de-clutter’ the thoughts that run rampant in our own brains. A lot of our busyness and stress can often come from a need we have to constantly bite off more than we can chew, and many times it leads to us overworking ourselves and feeling those effects tenfold.
I also share how the current books I’ve been reading relate to our current environmental crisis and give some insight into what we can learn from nature and apply to our own lives. If you’re keen to learn more, then tune in to Episode 10 of Flowerhood!
