You Are Not Defined By Your Grades.

For those collecting their exam results today, I ask not what grades you got, but what you love doing! Because a letter on a piece of paper means nothing in the grand scheme of life. What does is pursuing what makes you happy which is surely what we should all be striving for at any age!
.
I got a D (or maybe an E – I don’t even remember now!) in Business Studies and went on to found @notonthehighstreet and @holly.co by pursuing my passions with complete and utter determination and belief in my idea and cause!
.
The hardest part for so many people is actually figuring out what you want to do, what you want to create, what change you want to set in motion!
.
So whether you got the results you wanted today or not, take a minute to scribble down the things that make you happy that light you up and bring out the best of you! And then make sure this is what leads you in what you do next – be it an apprenticeship, university, starting a business, interning, travelling – whatever! But please don’t just do something because it’s ‘the done thing’ or because someone expects this of you.
.
Get to know yourself now, and always stay focused on what makes you happy and brings you to life. Lights you up like a thousand fairy lights! There is only one ‘you’ in this world, a 400 trillion to 1 chance that you’d exist exactly how you are at this very moment – don’t waste it! XX
.
We are trying to grow our following of all the daughters and sons of those following us here, so if you know someone who got their results today – please will you share this post with them. I hope it helps them and the bright futures they have, whatever their results. Thank you XX
