181: I hope you make mistakes | 5 min pep talk


This 5 minute pep talk will remind you that life is not forever. That YES you should take that leap, try the things, follow your dreams! And when you make the mistakes… know that they are the magic! 

Soul words of the week…

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”  Neil Gaiman

Our 5-minute pep talks are designed to give you a burst of inspiration, something you can go back to again and again when you feel like you need it. 5 minutes to get you grounded, content and realise that maybe everything is going to be ok. 

We start with a quote. Words that speak to our souls, they open our hearts, words that shake up our perspective, that give us chills. And then we discuss for 5 minutes.

If you’re new to the show be sure to check out all the episodes on iTunes and Stitcher for Androids. Plus we are on Spotify over HERE! 

Always merrymaking,

Emma + Carla
