Honestly, gambling has a really bad reputation and most people tell us not to gamble. When people think of gambling, people generally think of casinos. However, I’m not sure whether it is entirely because of anime, but I believe that a lot of anime has made me view gambling as something we do on a day to day basis. Not simply in casinos.
Every day, whenever we make a decision, we make a choice that we need to believe in. We often have to make a gamble as to whether or not we are making the right decision. Is my decision wrong? Is it not the best option? To believe in oneself or to doubt oneself. We are constantly gambling to decide our futures.
“If you don’t risk your life, you can never hope to gain anything.” – Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece)
“If you are not willing to sacrifice anything, you will never succeed in gaining anything.” – Armin Arlet (Attack on Titan)
Indeed, our decisions may not always be the best and we may end up losing things, however, it is all part of a gamble that it would help us to learn and progress towards a better future. Or at least, that is what I believe.
If we simply fear and doubt, we would never be able to move forward, and honestly, I cannot see any future in doing so.
Thus, this week’s song choice for Song Lyric Sunday is “Kono Yubi Tomare” by JUNNA.
