Losing.

For some it is the worst thing.

For others, it is a temporary condition.

Or it can be fatal.

Perhaps it is a lesson learned.

Some give up when they lose,

Never to try again.

Others, get up, dust themselves off and try again.

Those who are successful have histories of successes and failures.

Lose a few, win a few.

It’s all in the game of life.

If you happen to be born in a world of fortune and fame, is it easier to win?

Or easier to lose?

Is it luck?

Or is it a passion?

I think it may have to do more with an attitude, a vision and a dream.

Most can’t do it alone.

Some can, but rarely.

How do we measure success or failure?

Money?

Fame?

Power?

Contentment?

Happiness?

Perhaps, Steve Young said it best:

AROUND THESE STREETS AND OLD HOUSES ALOT OF CHANGES I BEEN THROUGH,
FROM THE TOP OF THE TOWN TO WASHING CARS , BEING DOWN OUT AND BLUE,
AND I ONCE MET A WOMAN HERE WITH WAYS LIKE I NEVER HAD SEEN
WE USED TO RAMBEL BETWEEN HERE AND OLD NEW ORLEANS
SO I’VE JUST COME BACK HERE TO REMEMBER A JOY AND A PAIN
TO LOOK BACK TO A YEAR THROUGH A TEAR IN AN OLD WINDOW PANE
AND I DID WANT TO SEE MONTGOMERY IN THE RAIN…..

Ah Life!

A series of wins and losses.

A never ending saga of joy and sorrow.

And the most wonderful feeling, in spite of it all, of being alive

With another chance… to live, love and win.
