The game is not over, until the last over.
I think a good life will be like a great game of cricket. You need to go out there on the pitch and try to score as many glorious runs as possible within the inning. Undoubtedly challenges will try to bowl you out as quickly as possible perhaps even in your first over; undoubtedly there will be opponents crouched behind and lurking all around the pitch waiting to catch you out.But take some chances anyway; don’t stay forever behind your crease , blocking and protecting your wicket. Hit some astounding sixes and fours , steal some dangerous runs. And at your final over when you have to return to the pavilion , there should be clapping all around, not weeping.
