Win Some, Lose Some

When you think about winning, it always seems so triumphant…A big cheer goes up, fireworks, the big victory. But sometimes those victories aren’t an explosion at all. Sometimes what we gain can be small…Like understanding what yourself is going through. And sometimes the looses can feel overwhelming. And often then you realize winning and losing isn’t the point at all…and sometimes making a point can be its own triumph. Maybe it’s true. It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, as long as you play. Stay in the game. Maybe it’s true in chess and in life…Sometimes you have to let a really important piece to go to hold onto something else. And right now I was on the board with something really special.
