Today we're examining failure and our aversion to failure as a way to dismantle capitalism and patriarchy in our society. Failure helps us learn, but we're so afraid of failing that it's created a system of lying. So instead, we're looking at how we can create cooperation, collaboration, and community.
"The more we resist looking at the ways we've 'failed,' the more we're perpetuating a culture of perfectionism."

- "Cocky" comes from 16th century English, originally meaning "lecherous," and referring to the showy ways and strutting of a male bird

I would love to hear from you!
How has failure been a teacher for you? How has failure helped you along your journey?

Don't worry about whether you'll fit in. You belong, sister! I'll send you weekly-ish emails about expressing your authentic self, sisterhood, and living with the seasons to enjoy with your morning cup of tea (or, if you're like me, a killer cup of coffee).
