Life is an ongoing competition, that, when put into perspective, has no finish line. No one wins. I’m not talking spiritual. Forget that for right now.
So why do we have such a competitive nature?
I’m not a competitive soul. It’s a contrast to a lot of people I know.
I’m not really sure what happened, but somewhere along there we both lost ourselves. I knew all along you wouldn’t win, but I don’t like that word anyway. I knew all along this wasn’t your time. I knew all along it would soon be your time. Just not this time.
We both worked hard. Really hard.
We both wanted it. Really bad.
We are both hard on ourselves. Really hard.
That makes us a good team. 🙂
I know I won. But I don’t like to use that word. I still need you, and your time will come.
I only have one regret.
I wish that I would have told you that your time would come, but not this time.
I thought you knew that already, but you didn’t.
I’m really sorry.
I know how dedicated you are, and I heard you talk about it all the time. I led you on. I never talked about it. I only talked about you. But I was dedicated, and I did want to talk about it. I deserve this. It’s my time. I know that.
I’m glad I got the chance to speak to you. The words I said to you were the words you needed to hear.
Sometimes the journey ends up being a bit longer than we expect. But the journey isn’t over. Keep working hard, take time to grow, and you’ll get there. I know you will. I’m excited for your future, and I know you will be amazing. This isn’t the end. You didn’t lose. You didn’t fail. You picked yourself back up, and you are already on your way. It really is all about perspective.
