I know you’ve all been highly anticipating the very first #failfriday video from this week’s workout. (I promise, it’s a good one!)
But I’m going to have to ask you to wait a moment longer; I’d like to explain what #failfriday is, and why I’m determined to stick to it.
Aside from being an obvious day to release
humiliating funny videos of past failures, it’s also a day to CELEBRATE!
With the onslaught of social media, we often forget how human we all are.
We’re constantly bombarded with images of perfect posing, a good lighting, and exciting background. It’s far too easy to forget that what we see is constructed perfection.
Now as someone moving to a social media platform to express my values and explore my passions, I understand that it’s a visual platform that requires a certain air of aesthetic – I can’t argue that good posing, lighting and backgrounds get the most likes and shares.
But too often we’re fed the perfect narrative – the character that has a few flaws, but within the space of 40 minutes transforms themself, and becomes the hero – and YOU CAN TOO by following this “3 minute circuit to a sensational booty” routine (eye-roll).
We’re forgetting to show the struggle, the grind, the hustle, the truthness!
So, for this reason, I’m determined to stay true to you. You’re here to get to know me, and I’m here to share with you my jourmey and I intend to do so without turning a blind eye to the fails.
Because it’s funny.
Because it makes you smile.
Because it makes us HUMAN.
Because it reminds you that no matter where you are in your journey, success is only one attempt more away from failure.
So with that being said,
Let’s #failforward shall we?
*If you like what you see, then please comment and share so more people can smile on this, #FailFriday
