Competition

Why do we (I) compete? is it genetic/survival of the fittest? my siblings all love a good argument and love to compete - maybe it's nurture? But I don't really recall our parents pegging us against one another the way you see in some families. My hobby is competitive singing, I love to race and beat people at games, my blood gets riled up with just a verbal sparring. However, I don't win very often. In fact, when I buy a raffle ticket or enter a contest of that sort, I never expect to win, as I never have. But I heard myself saying that recently, and then I mentally corrected myself - THIS TIME, I WILL WIN! I'm visualizing it!

The following week, my quartet entered the County Fair singing contest and won first place, Best in Show.
