Today, I just replaced my old profile picture in MyEC. I chose the profile that described my thought at that moment. “Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn” and this words attracted my attention much. An idea crossed my mind then, why there was not written “Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose”?  I thought it was matching enough with the original one.

The thoughts of ones will influence the words or actions that possibly to be taken or respond with the circumstance around their. I believe, for the optimistic people there will no lose, only learning from the mistakes or disappointments from their experiences. So, there will be a wisdom from those occurrences in order to avoid the same mistakes as in the past. It is generalized, not for specific the cases. 

The meaning of lose itself can be interpreted differently one another. Some of us will perceive like a tremendous sadness or miseries, but for some these could be a part of their life journey and they can accept it as it is. I know the last one is for the great people, I need learn to be like them and it is hard for sure, not as simple as to be done.

Buut, buut….hufftt, anyway I always try to put in my mind that God will replace what He has taken out from me with the better ones. Once again it is not easy to be practiced, I guarantee it, but we cannot do nothing to change the occurrences that is disappointed or unhappiness to ourselves. So, accept it as it is and try to be positive responding to the conditions. Try to walk outside of my place and look at the sky, I can still see the sky is large as if describing my heart (just trying to be) which can resettle the inconvenient feelings and changed these to be a good zeal.

"Keep the faith, the most amazing things in life tend to happen right at the moment you are about to give up hope"

There is no obvious messages that I want to share. It is only the expression of my feelings at the time.

What you have said are really true. I couldn’t agree more with you that sometimes we cannot accept the fact that we lose, because we often forget there is always two possibilities in life. So, why we don’t prepare ourselves in lose as well not only in win.

Accepting the fact makes us more peaceful to be honest. Thanks once again to share your thoughts with us.

Great. What a lovely post.

It is said well that experiences makes us, and I do agree. Sometimes it can be necessary to stop up and think "why am I really feeling sad about this?" Answer often appears. One have to look at the bright side and then something positive can always be found.

If we did not have certain kind of experiences, how would we even be able to see things in their proper context.

Sometimes because of the person we are, we may be living in an ignorant bliss wearing the pink glasses, unable to see, unable to think - I feel happy for the wake up call ... for the experience.

This was meaningful reading, thank you so much for sharing.

Well... Your blog makes people to rethink some life views, or at least just mine:) I don't know if this saying "Sometimes you must accept, you can't win all the time" is really Lionel Messi's saying. But i came to this conclusion some years ago by myself:) I didn't know that it was his saying... Thank you for sharing, Icha!
