In life we all have our moments to come first.
First word and first step. First day at school. First glow of pride. First flush of frustration.
First best friend. First joke. First confidence and first betrayal.
First crush and first kiss.
First partner and first rejection. First sexual experience and first long relationship.
First job application, first place of your own, marriage or partnership, first born.
First word and first step and so it goes…
What about second?
Second is the chance to get it right. To see things with a bit more perspective. To discover your popularity isn’t just limited to one trick pony, one person alone, no matter how amazing they seemed at the time.
Second is a reprieve and a relief. Second gives you room to move up. Second for best, not second best.
