Royal Flush

2023, Henery X ©

Let the cards fall where they may. This is your mentality when you know the dealer of the game you play. I don’t need a cheat sheet when I control the hot seat, seeing I always have the hand to beat. Three of a kind, a full house. Those are great hands, no doubt. But they’re not good enough to defeat a royal flush. It’s like finding silver, but it’s all about the gold rush. That’s right, God dealt me the best hand, but I had to realize this by not always being the best man. Took some L’s, spent some time in hell, but heaven was the final destination once I prevailed. Now I win, even when I lose, because I now know my reaction is my choice to choose. So, avoid the table of opportunity when I take a seat, because me and mine need to eat. And I always go all-in, willing to lose, but playing to win.

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my offering. May all you deserve and desire flow abundantly into your life, as a river does into a sea.

Remember. I’m not here to convince you to believe. I’m here to offer you something else to consider.

May we never lose our desire to outdo what we’ve already done.

Continue to be a lighthouse for all those who feel lost in the sea of life.
