Writing is to be brave, it is to reveal yourself wholly. It is looking inside yourself – into the chasm – and writing
about what you see, think, and feel. This is my chapter... This is my life... This is me.
Heart attacks, auto accidents, mounting debts, work problems... Every conceivable kind of bad news lurks around the corner. No wonder we find it difficult to play the game of life successfully. Each breath we take is a gamble that we won't catch airborne viruses nor inhale dangerous fumes. From the moment we open our eyes in the morning to the time we sleep at night, our lives are filled with danger and disappointment. Think of life in terms of basketball : At times, we might put too much energy on the first quarter and end up too tired to go on the next. At other times, we feel so down and cheated that we want to just stop playing altogether. And oftentimes, we get too aggressive we incur fouls in the early going. The goal is to find a style and strategy in playing the game of life that keeps us in competition.
