The colleagues (team) organized a mini team building last Friday. We did bowling at UBowl, One Utama.
The bowling alleys and the ten pins at the end of each alley gave me some sort of inspiration about life's journey. For newbie bowlers like me, if I'm lucky, I could knock down 9 out of 10 pins. Most of the time, only 4 or less pins were down. Sometimes, the ball would roll into either the left or right "drain" alongside the bowling alley, without much effort. Hahaha!
You see, life's journey is not a smooth one. Along the way we meet "the pins" (obstacles, problems, setbacks, etc). Sometimes, we "knock down the pins or strike" (face and deal with those difficult situations). Sometimes, we choose to avoid them by "going down the drain" (running away from difficulties).
Whatever method we choose, we will have to face the consequences. "Knocking down the pins" might be painful, but issues are resolved. "Going down the drain" might be less painful, but it is usually a temporary solution and the real fundamental issues could show its ugly head again sooner or later.
Nevertheless, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger (What Doesn't Kill You, Kelly Clarkson).
Love life and live life to the fullest! :)
