The imagination is so delicate that sometimes even words wound it

This life is a game. You can win, or you can lose, and you can play for hours and days and weeks and years, but in the end you will either win, or you will lose. There is no guarantee as to which side the wind will blow and what fate has in store for you. All you have to do is walk the path that you see and ditch torments and fears.

There are no ties, there are no equal forfeits, there is no compromise or gray zone, it's either black or white, top or bottom, there or not. There is always 'or' and there is no definition or scientific code to make you go for the even than the odd. You will just have to keep trying, whether or not you will be surviving.

But here's the secret, the cheat code to the game. Some might think I am just being stupid to not apply it if I know it but this cheat code really needs determination and push, without the real 'want' there is no way I am unlocking all the locks.

You can only loose if you give up. As long as you keep trying, you win. Even if you fail at every turn. Even if you hurt and you cry when you go to sleep at night, and you would rather die than get up in the mornings, if you don't give up, you win. I am the dawn I keep telling me. i will fall when the night breaks but I will rise to a new beginning. The path will lead me astray but I will have to make a vow to fight my way back. I will have to know that thorns will prick me and I will bleed but in the end I will only survive if I am determined to be.

You have to fight to better yourself. Do you think anyone was ever truly better off because they just waited for things to blow over all their lives? Or because they just dealt with their problems silently and acted like they weren't hurting? Living day after painstaking day suffering alone.

Even if you don't give up on life, even if you don't stop playing the game permanently, you can lose. You lose when you abandon. The day, the instant, the moment you begin just moving the pawn and rolling the dice without caring where they land, you've lost.

Don't lose. Don't give up. Even though this game is long, and this game is tiring, it's going to get better. It may have to get worse first. It may not be better tomorrow, or the day after, or the day after that, but you can't let it get to you.

Hold your head up high, and when they try to bring you down, lean back, put on some good music, and roll again.

You certainly speak truth. Yes, life is hard, but we will be miserable if we just let it roll over us.

A D,

Very true what you say in Resolve. And this one is King Bruce and the spider told in different words.

Take care

It is the journey not the destination that is so important.

I was engaged by your gritty resolve, don't lose that.

What is it that stops us in our tracks? Why do we give up on the game? Maybe we just need a breather every now and then, to regroup, revive our confidence.

I love this post...... you are so right. No matter what life throws in our way, we may have to dig deep to keep on, but we have the ability if we have the resolve to do so.
