The strong survive, the courageous triumph

The fact that life is unpredictable is a universally known fact. One day can change your life. One day can ruin your life. But you have no idea how unpredictable until it hits you right where it hurts. And when it does hit you, you either lose or you win with strength that you never even knew you had.

We get inspiration from the most unlikely sources. For some it’s the thought of having someone behind them, someone who is ready to catch them in case they tumble and fall. For others it’s that incredible urge to win against all odds. The feeling seeps into your mind and heart with such intensity that every cell in your body yearns to win.

You go ahead and you do it. But all you feel is a hollow in your chest. You win but you don’t feel victorious. You fail to understand whether you gained or lost.  Whoever said winning wasn’t important sure knew what he was talking about. Victory is what is important. Triumph is what makes you satisfied. Winning, is just holding a big fat trophy in your hand a.k.a its useless. Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.

  3. Girl, you are not only a style inspiration, you are a writer! And your piece right here in victory really spoke to me. As an athlete who just finished her senior year of sports, reading this touched me. I'm actually thinking about printing this out and showing it to my coach. :)
    Anyway, this outfit is cute! Love the bright red tights you paired with the dress. Really makes it stand out.

    Don't miss out on the giveaway on my blog!
