The water didn't get warmer...

I got more bold
and more careless of cold
- Stephan Stubbins
I face the pesky problem
and send it to my head

To find the answer hiding
in my heart instead
- Stephan Stubbins
In a world of "do you love me"

Answer "yes"
- Stephan Stubbins
Compared to you
I tried and grew
a niche of my potential

I let you go
and now I grow
in networks exponential
- Stephan Stubbins
Know the prize is there

...but don't stare

Plant your roots amongst the jewels, gentle one
​​You are a forest, far more than just a tree

Withering your majesty serves no one

Hitting Home Runs in Basketball…

I hit a big home run
Yet scored no points at all
For though I had the greatest swing
The game was basketball

– Stephan Stubbins

If all of life is a game…

…and if our habits, choices, goals, and preferences are all geared toward what we believe score us points and get us closer to “winning”… 

Then it’s valuable to ask… are you playing the right game?

We can hit all the home runs in the world (money), but if happiness in our life is scored like basketball (love), when we add up the points, perhaps we’re not winning at all. 

That “Scrooge” storyline is a popular one… 

What games are you playing and how are you scoring points? Are you playing the game that really matters to you in the end?

Extra credit: Are you playing finite games, or  “infinite” ones…?

Wishing you the best,
Stephan
