I remembered growing up when things don't go well, especially at school or some competition that I badly wanted to win, I would sulk and wail something along the likes of, "I'm already trying so hard, why is it that I'm still not getting there with everyone else?"
For this my mom would always give me a look and have the perfect come-back, "How do you know everyone else is not trying harder?"
I've been thinking about this recently, mainly because things have been going rather badly and I'm reminding myself to reflect a bit more and work harder instead of sulking.
Now to banish those blues and get back down to work again. Hope everyone's having a good weekend.
