So I’ve been playing Farm Heroes Saga (farm version of Candy Crush) for a few months now. A month ago I reached a level where I had to get three stars in order to get three new animals. The first couple of times I played the level I couldn’t even complete it! Frankly, I was annoyed because I had friends who had passed the level quite easily but I kept failing. Finally, after about 20 tries over a two week period I managed to finish the level with one star.
Many people would have given up. At one point I felt disgusted enough and decided to stop playing. A few days later, I resolved to not be a quitter and attempted the level again. On the fifth try, I completed it with two stars. At this point, I was practically jumping for joy.
However, I still wanted my polar bear… So much to my chagrin, I attempted the level again. I was beginning to lose heart with this attempt. This was the attempt that I told myself that if I failed once again, I was gonna be thankful that I got two of the three animals and move on. I started without heart. Much to my surprise, when I had 10 moves remaining I had already procured all my fruits :). Now, if I could have bum-flicked I would have :). If I had a pair of pom poms I would have buss a routine (remember I can’t dance). By the time the 10 moves were completed I had my polar bear and ma glad bag buss because I hadn’t given up.
The point of my rambling is that if you want to walk, don’t give up no matter how many times you fall. Try to maintain your childish enthusiasm and willpower and go again. Find and connect to the child in you who doesn’t see the failure in falling. You have to be in the game to win.
I am a dynamic young lady who loves the Lord and seek to have a joy that no one can take away. My all-time favourite thing to do is gaining discoveries by design from My Father during our time each day. Reading, learning and trying new things falls behind in a close second place. My dream is to use my God-given talents to positively impact as many people as possible. As a proud Wolmerian, with a zest for life, I adhere to the “Age Quod Agis” motto in that whatsoever I do, I always do it to the best of my ability.
