If you think about it everything in life is a game. Our aim is to achieve our full potential until we finish the game of life. We can fail numerous times but as long as we enjoy it we are going to keep going. As long as it doesn’t destroy our spirits and make us not want to play anymore – we are going to try and get better each and every day.

Except for trolls…those people are dicks.

I’m writing this because my life is full of games right now. Literally I have been spending most of my day playing video games today and ignoring everything around me. It’s quick affirmation that I am finishing something. I have so much that in the air that will take a while to finish, or maybe will never finish. It’s hard to recognize the small things that you can finish every single day. These things become repetition and there is little external affirmation.

I noticed that I am starting to ramble so I don’t know where I am going with this. This is just a little blog that I wanted to write to get it off my chest. A blog that tells me how games can be helpful to the mental state of a person. Those small goals of a video game can help you recognize the small goals of everyday life.

Though it would really help if I learned moderation….obsession begets addiction? Or does addiction beget obsession?
