Life is … a football game.
You can’t play alone, but you can train alone.
You don’t get to choose your team mates, but you might find lifelong friends and enemies among them.
Some games might find you on the bench, others might have you starting out and the rest might have you playing the last few minutes.
It doesn’t matter what stage you come as long as you give it your best shot.
Some games you score, others you aid and some others you literally seem to do nothing tangible than running after the ball.
You shouldn’t judge your efforts or abilities by a single game, look at the big picture.
Some people will support you others won’t, but everyone will acknowledge your skills when you harness them.
Some clubs will bring out the best in you, others will leave you worse off; don’t judge the club alone do some introspection.
Whatever the case you must learn to leave every grievance off the field lest your negativity ruins your judgement and costs you priceless opportunities.
Hi there, thank you for stopping by today. This is the 19th edition of my ‘life is’ series where I try to relate life to different things in society. Would love to hear your thoughts on life is … a football game.
Don’t know why but this edition holds many truths for me.
