Last year, when my life started to fail, in amongst the drama and the unhappiness, two videos connected with me, with where I was at, and made me re-evaluate my life.
The first one is Brene Brown’s TED talk on vulnerability. She talks about connecting with people, being human, letting people in. It struck a chord in this perfectionist control freak. This video is one of the reasons I am doing this blog.
The other video that had a profound effect on me was Scott Stratten, author of Unmarketing. He talks about stopping keeping on going. He talks about how he made all these sacrifices in the name of his family before realising that he was sacrificing that time with his family. Last year, I kept on going. I pushed through the emotional and physical pain and I paid for it. I should have stopped. I should have focused on the things that matter. I dare you to watch this and not cry.
