Doesn’t matter if your a pawn or a king, if you win or lose, pitch black to glass white , cardboard to marble, it doesn’t matter how you decide to play your own game of life , we get no 1 ups or insert quarters to continue because we all smiled, played our best and closed our eyes and will end up in the same familiar box or held closest to by the people we played to live and love with the most. Stay humble because your after life is yours to fulfil after this life so live in the now and don’t look back you aren’t going in that direction anyways . There’s No regrets or bad choices when they’ve only made you a stronger richer person on the inside to reach full self accualization and your eternal peak of happiness .- so mote it be Buddha love!
