So True!

Sunday, 28 October 2012

I saw this today on Abby Goes Design Scouting, via Cup of Jo, and it made me smile.  I don't know about you but I'm terrible for expecting results immediately, and then wanting to quit as soon as I realise I'm actually no good at something.  I guess the sayings "good things come to those who wait" or "if at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again" are popular sayings for a reason!

  1. Yes I'm exactly the same. But I notice as a parent how frustrating that is when my son does the same thing - I feel like a fraud when I tell him that you can't be great at something straight away and to keep on trying! The amount of things I've just quit over the years...... x

    1. Now that it true!... We gave our daughter her first bike this weekend for her 3rd birthday and my husband and I were laughing as she is just like me - she found the pedals hard and ended up climbing off saying she was tired of riding. And there I was saying that with a little practice she'd get there!

  2. Soooo true I love it!, thank you for sharing,
    Bestest wishes to you
