I'm a visual learner with a long history of journalling. I must get clear on what is driving me CRAZY.

Sometimes I feel that I cannot live everything that I am. I have always had so many ideas and so many dreams. But there is not enough time and space to live them all. Sometimes this really drives me crazy and makes me sad.

I'll get my self-confidence from soccer. It grows when I win a tackle, when I can celebrate with my team or win a thrilling game. Of course I doubt myself at times. For example in school, right before a math exam or when overhearing a stupid comment by a classmate. However, when I am on the pitch, the insecurities are gone. Soccer and my friends help me every day. OLIVIA, 15, LOVES SOCCER AND HAS INITIATED „Gib Gummi“ TO GET HER LOCAL FOOTBALL COURT IN BERLIN REPAIRED.
What keeps me going? We have no other choice, which is why we just do I guess.

Basically we start to move forward. and once we move, we'll we have new perspective and things can shift again. Otherwise we are truly stuck! DESIGNER MEHRNOOSH KHADIVI OF CRAFTWORKS STUDIOS LONDON
