Ponderings – Enough

Change occurs not when we are ready and waiting, but when we least expect it, when we are vulnerable, when we are at our lowest, in the darkest recesses of our very beings. It is when we finally face ourselves, when we take off the mask, step out from under the veil of superficiality and tell ourselves, “Enough is enough”.

That is when change occurs.

Ponderings – Competition

Everyone likes a little competition. But no one likes to lose. Of course, it’s purely circumstantial. Lose to a foul, delinquent group of cheaters that twisted the rules in their favor, then you’ll definitely feel the salt rubbed in your wound. But lose to an honest, admirable team of good sports that simply beat you fair and square? I wouldn’t call that a loss- I’d call that an honor.
