Life is too short not to appreciate what you do have. My experiences have taught me to never take what I do have or get for granted. Life, like a roller-coaster, could change directions on the drop of a dime. I need to be ready to brace for the impact. React. How? I do not know. We all experience and cope with life in different ways. I am still on my path to finding my own way with dealing with good and bad situations.
I believe that life is like a roller-coaster ride and we are simply strapped in for the ride. Life constantly fluctuates between high and low points, much like how a roller-coaster constantly moves up and down. To this day I still experience these same fluctuations. For my Ultimate Frisbee tournaments, this is all too true. Many times we will have great games, have fun, win. Other times we will have terrible games, in which people are criticizing one another, and we will lose. These experiences are just one of the many “roller-coaster rides” that I have gone on.
