Before you get too congratulatory for me, I should explain that in the Blog Olympics hosted by Barbara of Trying to Catch Up, gold medals go to the top 10%, bronze goes to the bottom 10%. Everyone else gets a silver.
Today, I read this quote from author, Kent Crockett, from his book "I Once Was Blind but Now I Squint."
"Most people would assume the silver medal winners would be happier than the bronze medalists since they received a higher honor, but that wasn’t the case. The bronze medalists, who came in third place, were found to be happier than the silver medalists, who finished in second place.
The former Olympians explained how they felt about their medals. The third-place winners were thrilled just to have won a medal. The silver medalists, on the other hand, felt like losers because they didn’t come in first."
Then he goes on to say, more importantly, "What happens to you is not nearly as important (in your eyes) as how you perceive what happens to you."
