Accepting our losses and failures and humbling ourselves for there are things that are beyond our capacity to change and way beyond our comprehension. Therefore I think life is not about winning after all like many people perpetuate. I think that we are spectators in the greater essence because most of us constantly observe and even though there's a lot things we want, we couldn't do anything about it. Or am I alone in my train of thought?
We want many more things than we could ever achieve. For example, most of us want to be loved but not everybody is lovable or capable of loving back. We want more money and bling. Then why do most of us spend our lives in poverty? We want to discover the meaning of life but all we can ever come up with are preachy sayings and motivational ideas which I suppose makes everybody feel better for not knowing a crap. Many things are not accessible for everybody that's why I'm certainly sure that life is definitely not about winning.
We will never know what life is about but along the way, we will find our own reasons that will tell us what life is not about. But please remember that discovering what life is not about doesn't take us a step forward to knowing what it is about. It is just a happy picture that many people can say that they are living their lives to the fullest when they don't even have the slightest clue what life is about.
