Life’s a game of both chance & skill

February 8, 2011

Life depends not on holding good cards
but on playing those you hold well.

We’re not all dealt a royal flush.
Which means we have to be strategic.
Pay attention to timing.
And notice opportunities when they appear.

That means we must be here fully.

By the way, “being here” is an active state.

Life is best when we participate,
not simply observe.
