So proud of this little dude 😍
He loved playing the "bean bag game" but when he didn't make it in the hole the first few times, despite our encouragement, he pulled a little diva move, 👸🏻 stomped off and said he didn't want to play anymore. .
After pouting for a few minutes, he made his way back and started again...eventually, he started making the shots and was SO excited! .
Like - "Watch me every time I throw one Mum and Dad!!" 😜
It reminded of the persistence that kids have - they don't give up when they want something. They keep trying. They don't take no for an answer. .
When do we lose that?! As adults, I feel like we let ourselves give up as soon as things get hard. .
No instant gratification?! Psh, I'm done. .
Someone else does it better? Nevermind. .
I might actually fail? Forget about it. .
So all you grown ups, let's take our own advice and keep trying. Don't give up on things that you want. When you put in the work and heart, you succeed. .
Practice doesn't make perfect. Practice means progress. And PROGRESS IS PERFECTION. .
