When you feel like you’re losing at the game of life, it’s easy to start doubting your capabilities as a player and become disheartened—after all, this little game of ours can seem tough and even unfair at times. But what if all the rough tackles you ever received in life were in fact prompts to remind you that your worth isn’t and never will be limited to your so called accomplishments or failures. That your innate freedom to happiness will not be found in the representation of what you do or don’t for that matter.
For when you feel as if you are failing at anything, you are fundamentally being given the opportunity to draw the curtains around the illusion of who you think you are and give up on the game itself so that you can experience the unconditional—the so called ‘losing’ al - lows you to remember your natural state and walk away from the need to win as a mean of compensating for any lack of unreserved Self-Love.

Realizing that skill based success is not bringing you unconditional fulfillment, brings you the unwavering bliss you knew could only be found within.
You relinquish the need to control everything in and around your immediate reality and start to accept and honor your experiences for the growth opportunities that they are. On a deeper level, you begin to grasp that the whole pursuit of your unconditional happiness needs to have its focus internalized and realized as a state of being as opposed to doing, free from any dependable component—elemental happiness of the Self is not available from your external reality, it just is.
