struggle is beautiful

One of the things they don't teach you in college is how to fail. And I think it's a valuable lesson. Failing sucks. You need to learn how to react to it or it could kill you.

I came here all the way from Thailand to study. But I found myself lost and confused instead. I didn't know what to do with my life and have been here long time now.

My mom says I should go back to Thailand now. "This was supposed to quick" she said. 

I don't know. I've learned a lot. And failed a lot. And succeeded at a few things. I think that's how it goes.

I found that when you succeed, it's never enough. You're always looking for the next victory. One victory only lasts so long before you want more. What a shame. We're never really happy.

But I like the journey. Much like this cat's cradle game I used to play as a kid. It's messy and has tangles and looks impossible. But it's also beautiful. It has so many ways it can be used. Like a kaleidoscope of life. 

And once it's finally solved, it's boring and blah. Where are the zigzags? 

Failing has taught me to appreciate the journey because it's where you learn about yourself. It's where you grow. It's where you decide to try new thing. To meet new people. It's where the seeds of succeed are planted. 

I hope you fail many times. And then tell me all about the adventures you went through along the way.
