Life is like a Mahjong Game

Posted by

Have you ever played the electronic version of Mahjong? A game that requires tactics, observation, memory, and adaptive strategies. A game that is so much like real life it’s scary.

According to Wikipedia: Mahjong is a tile-based game that was developed in China during the Qing dynasty (1644 to 1912) and has spread throughout the world since the early 20th century.

I have a Mahjong game on my cell phone that I love to play. I got the app years ago with my first phone and I still have not beat the time on some of the tile sets. This particular game version has three levels of timing and I can get the first two easily, but the third one is really hard.

I’ve spent hours, days, years of my life trying to beat the game, and though it’s really hard at times, I haven’t given up. And I guess that’s the whole meaning for life, right? Never give up no matter what it is that’s blocking your progress. And I’m not just talking about Mahjong. I’m talking about your passions in life like my passion for writing books. Yours may be acting, teaching, CEO of a company, or maybe just getting up that rope in PE class. It’s in you to do it. Never give up.

It needed to be two minutes or less and I refuse to buy more shuffles so I’ll just have to try again.
