Failures and victories are valuable feedback; they’re avenues through which the world mirrors our faults and clarities back to our perception.

They can also be traps, if they’re taken as excuses to wallow in arrogance or self-pity.

  1. Mirrors reflect a fleeting misinterpreted present. They are not crystal balls. Nor are they reliable lenses on success or failure. Can we accept our thin ability to know and our inability to interpret constant change? Can we be happy playing our lives, knowing control is an illusion?

    • If we can accept our insignificance, our lack of control, then what naturally follows is to enjoy the challenge set before us, to do what we can with what we have in front of us. And while mirrors may not be exact, they fit firmly in the category of “what we have in front of us.” Ruminating on what may or may not be illusory becomes increasingly irrelevant in the face of what seems apparent: which is to enjoy the game while we can still play it.
