I value what I can’t do more than what I can do.

Of course I’m proud that I herded the llamas into their pen without letting any escape into the hills, but (my brain says to me) it was pretty easy, so clearly it wasn’t that hard, and anyone could have done it if they’d just tried.

Then I look at my book on llama husbandry, which I’ve been breaking my head against, and I think: This is hard, but I see other people doing it, so clearly it should be easy and I should be able to do it already.

Come on, brain!

I need to learn to value what I already do well as highly as what I wish I were better at.
