Perhaps the danger in doing so is that you will lose out, but if winning is the only thing then you have nothing. I think if I did try to win every game I played or every fight I picked on, then I would have won nothing as well.

Perhaps this is how I keep my calm by believing that every awakening encounter is a learning process. That I give more than what I should, accept even the most ridiculous and move on. Sometimes, the lessons are painful and the waiting can test your patience or dash hopes. But I am reminded that it’s a journey of shortcomings and perfecting them. Just remember not to shortchange yourself or the truth.
It’s only Thursday but our crew is already tired and stretching our limits. Nevertheless, we are running at our pace with good 90s music, silly laughters and keeping each other in good company.

“Always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” – Marilyn Monroe.
