Happiness Doesn't Come from Headstands by Tamara Levitt — Kickstarter



A modern day story about the search for happiness, and one girl's discovery that even in the face of failure, peace can be found.

Tamara Levitt has been writing, illustrating and producing the children’s series “Lyle and Leela”for the past three years. Her series is designed to help kids navigate the complex world of today. 

Her first story, “Happiness Doesn't Come From Headstands,” is a book about one girl's rise from failure. It's a book about acceptance, resilience and self-compassion. It's about letting go of comparison and learning that our achievements do not dictate our self-worth. It's about the process being equally important as the goal. And the recognition that happiness is often closer than it seems.
Tamara discovered that making a kids book is tricky business and have started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the book. "It’s far more involved and costly than I'd anticipated but I’m determined to bring this labor of love to fruition."


"Growing up, I learned that "try" was a bad word - that there was either success or failure. And my fear of failure was so strong, at times, I simply wouldn't try. Later in life, those instances became regrets. So now, I do my best to approach "trying" with enthusiasm even when faced with fear. And if I fail, I strive to congratulate myself on my efforts - a difficult thing to do in a world that rewards us for our victories alone. 
Just because we may have a failure, it does not mean that we are a failure. In a culture that equates achievement with self worth, in most of us, failure often evokes emotions such as anger and shame. Instead of being a source of lessons learned for the future, a lost match, or project gone wrong can bring about hopelessness and despair. As an artist and entrepreneur I’ve experienced my share of defeat, and one disabling experience in particular inspired me to write this story. "
