you lose some, you win some

Got philosophical just by watching LFC play against Reading and Marseille.

Lost 3-1

Won 4-0

This is how I stay grounded.
Not by watching football overdose lah.
But reminding myself, you lose some, you win some.
Unless you're the kind of person who don't earn his keep.
(think Italian football and all the bookies).

I lost so many things/persons in life.

I lost my perfect eyesight through endless reading of books.
But I gained knowledge more than a small person like me could have.

I never knew how to play batu seremban and getah
But I played with the boys (hey! whats so good about that, uh?)

I lost a friend who committed suicide. (Ste, rest in peace. I love thee)
But I found out that love does not end even when the person dies.

I lost my interest in doing maths.
But I found peace reading law (yeah right)

I lost contact with friends because we move around too much
Just to make my circle of friends bigger and the world at large is a playground for me!

I lost touch with all the entertainment industry
just to find that I only need myself to humour my own company.

I lost the marvel in keeping up with trends, fashion and gadgets
but I always will have the luck in discovery of other things (snorkel Kiribati =D)

I lost to a neighbouring school in a volleyball tournament
but I got to be the champion in cross country running.

I lost the chance to make the cut for the netball team
(not that I play decent netball~ ugh too girlish anyway) (gila sourgrape)
but I got myself captained for two years for handball (rawk on!)

I lost all the glamour and oh the glitz by not joining bigger firms
but I got a boss that does not breathe behind my neck (ahh I love ma job, ma!)

I lost the love that I once thought I knew that would save me
but I won the true love of my life.

And more than usual, I still don't get why things have to be bad, but I never question if there is any good in the bad, in the ugly, in the bleak.
For me, its just the way that how Allah shows us His Love, Grace and Mercy.

By not letting us drown deeper in the high.

Ya Allah, jadikanlah kami semakin bersyukur kepada nikmat kurnia-Mu.
Hidup ini, iman ini, dan kasih ini. Ameen.

p/s: I get emotional when LFC wins. Oh really!
We're just a small team. Sob sob. And no one I know supports LFC....hahahaha.

Gon' be buzee this week until new year.
Any meeting shall be made through appointment only. Ahaks.
so I won't be blogging/facebooking/friendstering for awhile. Sob sob.

U don't know anyone who supports LFC? Oh well, u shud've met Sarah Engine & asked. She supports LFC emotionally! Since God knows when. Our fave pastime - kutuk Man U(seless)& Chelsea (since I'm an ancient Gunner. So we have the privilege). Hehehe... (Football do teach u a lot of life lessons)

ha patutpun Sarah mcm ada aura itu,red blooded woman rupanya. I went to the curve for one of the matches,and I look so out of place supporting something so unusual.

Guess that makes me and sarah rare red blooded women, ha.
Yes we liverpudlians are so emotional. Haha.
