Write for Mistakes
Plus, a free masterclass to kick-start your summer
Hello Dear One,
Have you ever had the horrible feeling that you’ve mucked something up, but it’s impossible to find out straight away? Welcome to my Sunday: waves of worry about something I might have done wrong, going straight to the worst-case scenario. It reminded me of the years I worked in PR, where I’d be so convinced I’d mistyped a word or offended a client I’d feel physically sick.
This, I know, is anxiety. I also know the antidote: love and perspective. When I can love myself no matter what I’ve done I know everything will be ok. So, I did. I wrote it out, switched off and got some sleep. And the next day? Everything was fine.
As human beings, we will make mistakes – fact – and we need to find compassion for ourselves, rather than ladling on negative self-talk and judgement. You can play around with using I/you or may I here, especially if you’re new to self-compassion: may I have compassion for myself in this moment can be just as powerful – the important thing is the words feel true to you.
Thanks for being here, and being you.
We'll take time to ground and move into uplifting sequences – ideal if you feel frazzled, overwhelmed or just need some time for you. Open to all - all you need is a notebook and pen.
If you can’t make it on the night register and get the replay! It would be gorgeous to see you there.
