The Bronze Goddess

and then there was recognition!

From the time that we gather our senses, develop our taste and make our own choices, the one thing that can get daunting is the pursuit of acceptance and appreciation for our hard work. The school play where you play the lead for the FIRST time, still waving at your family.. the first time you realise you can ride that bike without anyones help and the very first compliment you receive on how lovely you look encourages us to work harder and better because that recognition made us feel special and valued
