Sistah Talk: How Losing Made Me Win!



I say love, and go for it, whatever it is. The victory isn’t in winning the contest, getting that particular thing, even in wooing that person to return your affection. The gift is in trying, and reaching out for it. If it is yours, it will recognize you. I’ve never been so happy to lose but let me tell you, I’ve lost many things in my life and with each loss I gained so much more. My heart has been broken to pieces and stomped on and it brought out the beauty that I didn’t even know I had. It made me an insanely brave soldier ready to stand at the front line of battle regardless of the outcome.

 The outcome was me finding strength, faith, and love that was swimming in the deep waters of my soul. I encourage you to embrace defeat. You remember the sting of pain and it teaches you. We may not like it, but pain can teach us so much. I am feeling really happy and I just lost something. I lost something I didn’t want to lose and it’s completely lost but it taught me so very much. Actually I lost 3 very important things that I hoped in.

I finally let go and I feel so good, I can’t even explain it. I feel free because I let go and gave it to God. You don’t have to walk around holding heavy daily worries. Guess what, you don’t have to hold up the sun today, you just need to enjoy it. You don’t have to do anything but walk in the power and grace that’s been given to you. Seize this day with passion and don’t be afraid to make a fool of yourself. I have many times. Don’t be afraid to lose what you really want so badly, I have many times. Don’t be afraid to be alone, I have been many times and I still am, but there are always those unexplained footsteps in the sand right next to me.
