If Life is a Game
From If Life is a Game, These are the Rules by © Cherie Carter-Scott
You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it’s yours to keep for the entire period.
You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, “life.”
There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately “work.”
Lessons are repeated until they are learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.
Learning lessons does not end. There’s no part of life that doesn't contain its lessons. If you're alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned.
“There” is no better a place than “here.” When your “there” has become a “here”, you will simply obtain another “there” that will again look better than “here.”
Other people are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.
What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.
Your answers lie within you. The answers to life’s questions lie within you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.
You will forget all this.
We surrender to win; we give away to keep;
we suffer to get well; we die to live.

"I think i spent 30 years of my life , the first 30 trying to become something. I wanted to become good at things. I wanted to become good at tennis, school, grades and everything i kinda viewed in that perspective. I'm not ok the way i am but if i got good at things........ I realized i had the game wrong, the game was to findout what i already was
