Our lives are full of competition, to the point where sometimes it feels like you simply can’t get away from it. When you lay the groundwork, put in the hours and do your best and you come in second, sometimes that can sting quite a bit. However, do not despair if you come in second, third, or even sixty-fourth in the competition. It may not feel like it in the moment, but the work you put in does count and eventually will lead to wonderful things, just maybe not in snagging the coveted first spot. Today’s entry is dedicated to Hugo, who valiantly represented Cambridge at the Oxford Cambridge Goat Race this past Sunday, and came in second. Maybe your year will be 2020, Hugo, or maybe your victory has yet to manifest, but either way, you were smashing and should be proud.
