losing with grace greatly outweighs any victory with arrogance (day twenty three)

losing with grace greatly outweighs any victory with arrogance

 

sometimes defeat doesn’t always feel like defeat

 

sometimes it’s what the soul needs

in healthy dosages

even though it feels like an avalanche every time

because it usually is

all at once

 

it’s a straight drop of bottomless potholes

my heart skipped every other beat during the freefall even though you never feel very free during those

lack of control

 

it’s the closest to flying we’ll ever get to without growing wings of our own

but we’d gladly trade them for the ability to land on our feet every time we fall

 

cats only chase the birds because they want to know the true freedom of gravity
