A few nights ago I was playing cards with my girlfriend and she kept winning. I suppose I had somewhat on an attitude. She laughed and told me, “Sorry, boo. I can’t control the way the cards are dealt. I can only work with what I’ve got.” Those words stuck with me throughout the rest of the night.
I went on my usual night thinking walk and I thought about the many different and difficult hands that life deals us. This made me think about the whole love situation. It seems like most people just except the hand that they are dealt or they sit and complain about it. Why not work hard to make the best out of the hand you are dealt? When it comes to the hands that love deals, when is it okay to pull another card from the deck and slightly work with what you have? And if you did take another card from the deck, would it be cheating?
These are the many things that I thought about as I walked around through the night. I had to put that whole idea into perspective. A close friend of mine is going through some problems with her love life. She is 21 years a virgin and pissed as hell about it. So, now, I guess I’m thinking of ways that she could slightly take a card from the deck to make the hand she’s dealt seem a little more workable. I’ll follow up on this post with more information about how I plan on helping my friend. If you have any suggestions then feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or post a comment. Thanks. Love, peace and empathy to all.
