The Freedom to Fail  [MarketHer 4th of July]

MarketHER | Podcasts & Shows | Women in Marketing

Happy 4th of July from the ladies of MarketHer!

Our theme for Season 2 is all about embracing the struggle and letting go of the idea of perfection, and sometimes the pressure to be perfect is no stronger than on holidays. 

Across social media, it seems like everyone is at the best party, eating the best food, and just overall, having the best time -- but that's not realistic.

In the U.S., today is Independence Day and that's all about celebrating our freedom to live life anyway we want; as "perfectly" or "imperfectly" as it may seem to others. 

#EmbraceTheStruggle! Love it! Don't be afraid to "fail" because failing is the first step to learning and growing, whether it be in your career or your personal life. 

What better way to recognize this freedom and empowerment on a day like today than to pull back the curtain on social media perfection and see what life really looks like.

Below we've shared some of our favorite Independence Day Pinterest fails. While the consequences of these shortcomings may not be as big as others you face, we hope they help you realize that failure isn't something to break you down. Laugh at it. Learn from it. 

Enjoy and we hope you are having a stress-free, no-pressure-to-be-perfect holiday! 

P.S. If someone you know says they pulled any of these off, they’re probably lying :)

Nailed It! (Literally)
