Reading Charlotte Freeman’s book, Everything You’ll Ever Need, during this time of my life was deeply moving, particularly with the way she illuminated these three themes.

First, self-reliance. Freeman poetically nudges us to uncover our innate potential and abilities. She doesn’t advocate for isolation, rather, she inspires us to tap into our inner resilience to face any challenge. Her message? “Believe in yourself and your journey” — we are our greatest allies.

Next, empathy. She implores us to extend our understanding, compassion, and kindness beyond ourselves. We are encouraged to perceive the world through others’ eyes and experiences, fostering connection over division. In essence, empathy can bridge our differences and shape a more loving, inclusive world.

Finally, resilience. Freeman reminds us the importance of perseverance in the face of trauma/turbulence. It’s not about the trials we face but how we bounce back. She tells us that heartbreaks and setbacks are part and parcel of being human. forward. “Think about it” she writes, “you’ve gotten through every tough day in your life so far, and this is no different. You’re so much stronger than you think you are right now.

Obviously, there is much that can be taken from the book based on your personal journey, but for me right now those themes really stuck out to me.

this. It’s important to remember that things won’t always go the way you want them to, and while you may not have any control over the outcome, you can control how you react to it. Every human on this planet is different, and if you choose to, you can learn so much from understanding why we feel the way we do and why others feel the way they do. Communicate, listen, and learn. Don’t forget that others may be suffering, too, just like you are. Maybe they show it and deal with it in their own way, that you don’t understand, or maybe they don’t show it at all.

Who is Charlotte Freeman?

Born and raised in Queensland, Australia, Charlotte Freeman is a poet and graphic designer whose words have resonated across the world. She is the creator of Momentary Happiness, a platform that initially began in 2013 as a creative outlet and has since flourished into a full-time career and a community of over 750,000 followers.

Charlotte’s journey towards this fulfilling career began rather unexpectedly. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Advertising in 2010. Although she wasn’t particularly passionate about advertising, she found herself employed as a dental nurse, working for her father. Comfortable but unfulfilled, Charlotte yearned for more. It was during this period that she started Momentary Happiness on Instagram as a hobby.

From a young age, Charlotte was drawn to writing poetry. When she was 12, her parents supported her passion by enrolling her in a Young Writers Camp. This early encouragement, especially a heartwarming letter from her mother, planted a seed in Charlotte that flourished over the years. The support and understanding that writing is a personal and expressive art form left a lasting impact on her.

In 2015, Charlotte decided to chase her true calling. She left her job and embarked on a new academic journey, studying graphic design full time. The fusion of her love for writing, community building, and graphic design began to pave the way for what Momentary Happiness would become.

In 2020, Charlotte’s dream took a significant leap forward as she released her first published poetry book with Thought Catalog and launched an online store for her poetry prints. By combining expressive words with visual aesthetics, she continued to make connections with her audience on a profound level.
