My family loves to play cards. Their game of choice is Spades and when we play, it gets pretty ugly and loud but it's so much fun. I don’t play Spades that often but when I do, I play to win. Sometimes I’m dealt a good hand and sometimes my cards are a bunch of junk. Either way, I have very little choice in the cards I’m dealt but I have to play my hand the best I know how and hope my partner has something good to help us win the game.
As you know, there’s always a life analogy that follows (What did you expect? This is a life tip post right?). I heard someone say that life is very similar to a card game. Sometimes you can’t choose the hand you’re dealt but you have to make the most of it. You have to deal with life when you have a good hand and when you have a bunch of garbage. Play it well, and hope your partner has a hand that can help you when you need it.
