Fake it, 'till you make it
Today is my birthday! (insert idiotic ship from Thor Ragnarok, aka the stupidist movie of the series)
Yesterday, I finally played my first chess.com match. I haven't played chess for more than a decade. I registered late 2019, but I didn't play a single game. I finally got the courage to do it, and… won! Yay! I messed up the early game, last a pawn I shouldn't have, got literally hammered in mid game, then somehow I managed to make a comeback in the late game and win. Even the computer said that I made a comeback win, and analyzed the game after that. It wasn't pretty, but it doesn't have to be.
Just like our life. I think we are focusing on the wrong things as humans, constantly. Try to enjoy it, once in a while! Whatever makes you happy! If you want read a book, watch a movie, do gardening (which is awesome btw), collect something meaningful, learn how to draw, play a game of chess, etc.
Have a good weekend!
