Housekeeper of the Hundred Blossom Palace - Chapter 70
“Princess Pan, I believe the ability to recognize your own failures is truly laudable.”
Li Yong said.
“It is troublesome dealing with ‘failures who do not do anything’ when training soldiers. Those people are particularly great in coming up with excuses not to do anything, and they are extremely slow to act. Unlike them, Princess Pan is still actively trying to change. I think that it is a very good quality to have.”
Princess Pan found it incomprehensible.
“Indeed, I also think that’s true.”
Yui Mei agreed with his opinion.
Among those patients that needed diet treatment, there were those who failed while taking action, while there were also those who failed while doing nothing.
Those who fail while taking action would then be able to learn from their experiences, and they can use that to move forward.
However, those who do nothing didn’t even have a starting point.
Li Yong then continued on.
“Also, people who are excessively confident, even though their pride is groundless, would stil push through despite several warnings against doing so. Then, if they got severely injured, they would keep on grumbling and complaining. We do not wish to work with those people as much as possible.”
“Yes, that’s also true.”
Yui Mei agreed once again.
Having a low self-esteem is worrying, but having too much is also a cause of anxiety.
She also had colleagues who did not listen to advice no matter what, saying “I’m totally fine!”, full of pride without anything to show for it.
Then when they screwed up, they would reverse the blame, saying “why didn’t you say so!”, Those were some fine memories, indeed.
Compared to those guys, Princess Pan was much better off, because she was taking action despite lacking confidence.
And if she succeeded in this Health Restoration Program, she would also gain confidence in herself.
Indeed, something like ‘confidence’ can also change.
“Indeed, there are people like that, too.”
Princess Pan was blankly listening to Li Yong’s words, but she eventually started to giggle.
Most of the servants around the princess are capable.
‘Besides, there are also those who had good looks and figures, too.’
She didn’t encounter failures among them, and so, she would needlessly think of herself as a failure, and fall into negativity.
Her self-esteem was low because of her excellent environment.
“Princess Pan, improving oneself isn’t something that can be accomplished in an instant, it will take time. In the first place, if it is easy to build your body, then anyone can become a strong soldier, don’t you think?”
“… Well, you’re right.”
Princess Pan seemed to have a eureka moment at Yui Mei’s words.
Actually, there were people whose physical constitutions are suited for work-outs, while there are also those who were the opposite.
That’s why it is futile to compete and compare oneself to others in this aspect.
“Princess Pan’s body isn’t comparable to others, because it is the Princess’s own body. That is why it’s okay to go with the pace that is most suitable for you. In the first place, even if you try hard to build your body in a short period of time, it will be meaningless if you get sick and have to stay in bed. It is important that you do not forget your goal and become healthy.”
Princess Pan mumbled ‘True, that’s right’ when Yui Mei reminded her of their original goal.
“What am I being so impatient for?”
The princess’s strength left her shoulders as she mumbled.
Anyway, the princess’ Health Restoration Program was slowly, but surely, advancing.
Initially, she would make a round trip around the corridors, then she moved on to taking short strolls in the garden, and then she would walk from the entrance of the mansion to the garden’s doorway, increasing the distance bit by bit.
Fortunately, the mansion was as wide as small-scale shopping malls in Yui Mei’s previous world, and the range was suitable for walking.
And so, Yui Mei was steadily accomplishing the work she came to do.
One day, Princess Pan suggested that Yui Mei take a day-off.
“You have been constantly accompanying me, so you haven’t gone out at all, right? You came all the way to Kei, after all. I also wanted you to see the sea.”
According to the princess, there were stalls that sold grilled seafood near the harbor, and it was a very bustling place.
“I was also amazed at the sea when I first arrived here, and Lord Li Min also took me together with him frequently.”
When Princess Pan said those words, Yui Mei’s imagination instantly flew to seafood cuisine.
Of course, they were served with dishes made with seafood everyday in this mansion.
However, they were all made to suit Princess Pan, so all the dishes were refined.
They were really delicious, but Yui Mei was a bit unsatisfied.
If they went to the harbor, then they would probably encounter food that were more popular, or the so-called junk food of her previous world.
‘Maybe they have grilled squid?’
Yui Mei loved the grilled squids served in stalls during festivals in Japan.
Do they sell those here in Kei?
