"Disappointment is the price we sometimes pay for the glorious gift of hope"Sandee Olek-Potts
We were both rooting for Yuna Kim and were disappointed when she didn't win gold. We thought she skated so beautifully and gracefully. I went to bed thinking about that. This morning I realized that Yuna may have aimed for the gold medal and got silver. Yet, she had skated as well as she could. It was a performance to be proud of, so why be disappointed?
We have all had experiences where we did the very best we could, yet didn't win the game, or the promotion, or the heart of another. Why do we feel so let down? Because society tells us that winning is what matters. It has taken me so many years to understand a simple truth: whatever we do with our whole hearts, with diligence, perseverance, and focus, cannot be a disappointment.
May you live life fully and never be disappointed when you've done your best.
