I was raised to believe that the only thing that deserves gratitude are the great ones. In our household, we only celebrate big accomplishments if you're in second place then you will not be celebrated.

I grew up thinking that I am not enough because compared to other family members I am not that smart and pretty, that's why I made sure that I developed a habit of learning. I read a lot but sometimes I still look dumb and clueless, my boss used to call me "the queen of the nerds" because according to him I represent the quiet/awkward ones, those who rarely speak but never fail to submit quality results.

I used to have a lot of things to do like I have a full time job, a small business, and several other part time gigs. I was not designed to have an idle time, I get anxious when I am not doing anything but due to some medical issues, I was forced to slow everything down. At first, I didn't like it at all because it's different from what I am used to.

But after awhile, I begin to appreciate the mundane normality of my current life. I still struggle to relax but I am slowly learning how to be still. I no longer feel bad when I am not accomplishing anything for the day, I just remind myself of th...

Celebrating big accomplishments had a positive effect on you. You learned how to thrive in your own way.

Our people have a long history of celebrating mediocrity. The fight hasn’t started but you’ll hear a lot of advance excuses already just in case the objective won’t be achieved. Like, “we hope to place in the top 4 but we would be lucky to survive the eliminations,” or some such bullshit declaration from our so-called sports leaders.

The result? A chance to make additional excuses for losing. Of course, if you don’t expected to win, you don’t play to win, then you will not win.

Anyways, congratulations on your emotional peace and in developing a strong character.
