never-compare-yourself-to-anyone-except-the-previous-you-quote-1I’m not a competitive person for the most part. I’m totally okay with losing as long as I have a good time along the way.

Self-Improvement-Quotes-Improvement-Quote-300x276I’m not a proponent of perfectionism. It sets you up for failure, because the perfect thing doesn’t exist.
