That’s How Life Works!

I was talking to a friend earlier today and they said back to me “That’s how life works.” Hmmm… that’s how life works? That got me thinking about how much we leave up to chance aka “life”. When things don’t go our way. When we missed out on the big opportunity. When we weren’t ready for something that came our way.  What do we do? We chalk it all up to “That’s how life works “

Is it really how life works or is it the fact that we didn’t plan? Was it that we weren’t focused on what we wanted? Could it be that we didn’t prepare for said opportunity? Could that be the reason we missed out on things, events, people, and more? Why doesn’t anyone say I missed out on something because I chose to? Why don’t we say,  I wasn’t prepared and so the opportunity passed me by? I mean c’mon life is not out to sabotage you, right? Life is not out to get you. You are out to get you by not planning, by not being prepared, by not being ready.

They say failure is the worse thing in life to live with, but I beg to differ. I think regret is the worst thing to live with! You see with failure it shows that you attempted at something. You cannot fail without 1st attempting at something. However regret, well regret means you didn’t even try. You didn’t even bother to prepare, to plan, to dream, to build, and to learn. You let you down! That my friends is the worst feeling, the feeling that you couldn’t even count on yourself… 

Til next time…
