Episode notes

Coming first in a race, topping your grade, being the main part in the play, making it into a selective class…..these are all fantastic things, but isn’t it equally fantastic to just be participating? Or is that a nonsensical idea that sounds good but is completely unrealistic? If we aren’t okay with being average, is that somehow putting pressure on all of us and perhaps our mental health too? What if we let go of being the best and celebrate being average and giving things a go? What would that look and feel like?
