This topic kept being loud in my mind for days now and I have been struggling putting it down as an article but just now I managed to pen down something about this topic.
I hope this will serve as a source of inspiration and motivation to those who are interested in reading my piece of mind at this period.
The entire world is gradually recovering from the buzz of victory and the ruse of defeat that accompanied the just concluded world cup organized by Federation of International Football Association that was hosted by Russia.
Ruminating on the Final Match that was played between Croatia and France.It was visible observed that the ball possession throughout the 90 minutes of the match had Croatia having the highest possession while France has the lowest.
France’s ball possession was recorded to be at 31 percent, while Croatia had it at 69 percent but at the end of the day,France took the lead.While Croatia was busy playing their heart’s out, France was busy scoring till the glory of the day was carried by France.
What a deviation from what is expected on the day.It beats the wildest imagination of all the viewers and spectators.This was quite against the run of play.
At the end of the 90 minutes,the team that is playing good football ended up being defeated while the one that is not performing lost the game.
Anyway, such is life.
We should always expect the unexpected.
Life always has a way of making the expected winner to loose and the expected looser to win.

There is always a time and a season on the surface of earth.
There are seasons when things are rosy and there are seasons when things are rough.These seasons are seasons that should be part of expectation of anyone who desire to have a grip that of what life is all about.
So, when the season of our existence shift from being rosy to being rough,when the chips are down, what can someone do?
