Anjali - Winning Is About Trying

And then we were playing a bit of 'catch-catch' with a ball and I was playacting with Anajli and whining - that she was winning more than I.

Pat comes the reply -'Nanna, winning is not about being sad. Winning is about trying.'

I asked her who told her that. She suddenly became all shy, said she did not remember, and ran off.

And so it is. Life is all about celebration. It is about winning. And winning is all about trying.

Celebrate we must - our lives - and the fact that we have an opportunity to be, to enjoy the moment and to drink deeply from the moment.

Win we must, because winning is about an attitude, of excellence, of responsibility, and not about the result. We win even when the result shows a loss.

And try we must, as hard as we can, for as long as we can, because that is what expands us and makes us bigger and pushes us closer to what we can truly be.

Thanks Anjali.
