It is fascinating to see that sometimes people twist and turn in times of uncertain excitement. When one's mind has been twisted, nothing is logical anymore. Logical in its true sense. Of course its logical to the twisted mind. An example, A hates B for being B for a long time. A wanted B to become like A and not being a dogmatic B. B was hit left, right and centre. B was smashed with no mercy. Then suddenly B wants to move forward and becomes better. B overhauled himself and becomes a better B who is liked by many more people than before. Now, A does not like this new B either. A is now saying B is out of his mind for not being the real or original B. B has diverted so much and has abandoned his original principle. A is telling everyone who cares to listen and to believe that B is now being influenced by others. What the heck? Suddenly A cares so much for B and his team members. The truth is B has improved so much that he is now probably better prepared to better A anytime. A is playing a reverse psychology or sorts but too bad nobody will take the bite. It is a sad sign of a twisted mind in action.

There are many things in life which can wait for time. People say, everything has its own time. But is it really true? Perhaps these hold true with the benefits of hindsights. In truth life is about time. Time waits for no one. It is up to us really, to find the right time for the right thing or the right thing for the perfect time. Indeed when the time passes us only memories will be left behind, good or bad. At times, it is gone for a while but other times, time is gone forever, no time to recover or re-discover. It is either thankful, remorse or regret that will be embedded in the remaining time of life. Indeed 'Demi Masa, Manusia itu kerugian...'
Often times, one would beg for another chance when he or she realizes that the current chance is not going to give the desired results. Some people do get another chance while others may not be lucky to have another bite at the cheery. For instance, in the education system, one has to go through several examinations. Most are minors while others are majors and could be life turning points. Because of these exams, some dropped off while others took off. In any case many do not recognize the fact that all these are stop points for one to reflect. These are milestones in life if the missed chances of the previous phases are used to improve and prepare for the next chance. It does not matter what it takes to prepare one self. There are many rags to riches stories whereby one fall propelled to greatness in life.
Having gone through many phases of failures with one success in the end may make one to take things for granted. Yes, all the missed chances are easily forgotten once one managed to succeed given the time. It is like in a football game, a striker may shoot at the goal many times. Eventually he manages to make one count and the team wins the match. Unfortunately, getting so many chances is only relevant as long as one is alive. We only have one life to live in this world no matter what people may say about cats having nine lives or what. The question is which one of our chances can be considered another chance or even the last chance? Unless and until we turn every single another chance in life as the last chance we may not even have time to regret. The bottom line is therefore to be mindful of life, cherish God given gifts, be thankful and grateful to Him and be the best person who can be real benefits to others like a candle in the darkness of night!
