Sometimes you have to stop the "trying" and just be ! And that.... is where a great deal... can be won!

I'm not quite sure how I'd define "being a loser" .... I've been labeled that before.... and I wasn't then and am not now. People tend to have differing perspectives on * trying* and what a person "should or shouldn't do". I believe in being true ... no vain attempts... just being. I've stopped trying many things. Got torn in two from " trying"with all my might. I quit. I found a content fragility in just being... knowing that all that trying was from the depths of the best of me.... but it is not up to me to fulfill everyone I knew.... now I'm unknown but to a rare few. Last thing I am is a loser.... trying lost everything. quitting and just being gave me myself back. A fragile contentment resides in this.

I love the way you said what you said Janice...

I think that in this life there are times to 'try'... and there are times to 'be'. It mostly depends on what we desire from a situation.

Our culture places far too much emphasis on 'achieving', 'acquiring' 'winning' and 'excelling'. But sometimes it's a great victory to simply be at peace with what what we already have or who we already are.
