What might happen if you try your hardest, but that is still not good enough? Can you accomplish something great even if you make a mistake? Do you need to be perfect to leave a great impression?
The Brazilian bobsled team in the Sochi Olympics showed that it is possible to not win but still win over hearts and inspiration. Impressive fundraising helped them get there. While in Russia, the teams continued to work hard and inspire fellow athletes. Finally, the women survived a horrific crash. Obviously, they accomplished much although they did not place first.
In honor of them, I cooked a Brazilian recipe: Coconut Beans or Feijão de Coco. This soup-like recipe blends sweet and salty. Although it did not end up perfect, I learned from my cooking and gave my family an unique supper.
