|So what’s it all about?|
My football team, Sheffield Wednesday, has won several games on the trot, and you could be forgiven for thinking they will end the season champions.
Nice dream, but unfortunately not realistic.
On the other hand the England rugby union team are now out of the World Cup, having last night lost to Australia (half expected) and before that to Wales (surprise).
So what’s it all about?
St James wrote “Rejoice when things are bad, for only then do you grow.”
And he’s dead right (one would expect the brother of Jesus to report more accurately than most) .
It’s no bad thing that England are out of the world cup. They can now begin to build for the future.
When you’re successful, the only view you have is down.
Losing has it’s good side, and winning is ephemeral.
