Though I hate to admit it, there are times when I compare myself to others and say to myself, “look how much that guy has accomplished, and he’s younger than me!” I sometimes even come up with excuses as to why someone seems to have accomplished more than I have in a shorter time, “well, she probably comes from a rich family”, or “he probably isn’t happy though”. And I don’t know exactly why I had or have these thoughts, but I have a feeling it is because I may feel inferior to those people or am ashamed of not accomplishing enough. And I think it is okay to feel like this sometimes, as long as it provides you that motivation to actually do something about it. But then there are times where you start feeling sorry for yourself and stay depressed. And if you are like me, you’ll start
There are some days when I am really busy working in my flower business and don’t have time to do anything, and that includes trying to further build the flower business as well. For example, for a stretch of 3-4 days when it was around Valentine’s Day, I literally was working in my flower business non-stop.

So a few years ago, I remember having a conversation with my mother and father over Skype. I have been skyping my parents every Saturday or Sunday for as long as I could remember to keep in touch, since I’m in Korea and they are in Canada. And I told them that I would make a website and social media accounts for their convenience store business. Their store sold what most convenience stores sold, plus flowers during warmier weather, and rented out DVDs. Yup, people in Canada are still renting DVDs. But, my mother was really against it. I’m not sure if it was because it invaded her privacy or because she was afraid it could negatively affect the business, but in the end, I didn’t go
