I’m a Failure
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! I’m 29 years old and coming close to that dreaded 30 years of age. Looking back I really wish I’d done more with my life. My anxiety has really held me back from taking risks. Don’t misunderstand, I’m not a boring person and I do try things, I moved to South Korea for goodness sakes! But I have to admit that most of my “try”s, are more along the lines of knitting and acrylic pouring. If you were to take all my attempts and put them into a “success” or “fail” category, a large percentage of them would be fails. And you know what, I’m okay with that. Wanna know why? BECAUSE I TRIED NEW THINGS! However, this year I want to try more.
I am a huge fan of The Try Guys. I’ve followed them since their first few Buzzfeed videos about trying on ladies’ underwear and sexy Halloween costumes. I fell in love with their group chemistry, but, I continued to follow them because they have the same basic philosophy that I have. Try things! The only difference between us is I’ve tried scrap-booking while The Try Guys do things like prank their coworkers and strip shows.
So, for my birthday present to myself, I’m going to try things that really push me. I haven’t quite determined what exactly I’m going to do, but I’m going to use The Try Guys’ new book The Hidden Power of F*cking Up as inspiration as well as some of their YouTube videos. This will be my year of TRY!
