“Butterflies can’t see their wings. They can’t see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that as well.”
― Naya Rivera

Recently I comforted my sister in a way that I now need to comfort myself. You may be able to relate to the scenario in your own life.

I took on a big challenge at work, it went well…but not perfectly…whatever that fiction is. Rather than breathe in deeply with satisfaction and pride, I gripped the missed opportunities, the slight stumble, the failure to “nail the landing” for almost 24 hours. Worrying over it like a tragedy, rather than an accomplisment with room to get better next time.
