10 Things I Learned from Candy Crush

In today's age of iphones, android, notebook and tablet who doesn't play this craze? And so who am I to struggle. I yield :)

For the past 2-3 months that I insanely played this delicious and addictive puzzle saga, here are my take-aways:

1. Do not give up
Failure is inevitable but alongside it comes a Retry option. Learn from your mistakes and move along. Perseverance is a big word, having the courage to try again is your baby step.

2. Life is precious, use it wisely
Life is a gift. Go ahead and unwrap it. Play. Live. Enjoy. Fill it with creativity, love, joy and gratitude.

3. No man is an island. 
At certain moment in your Candy Crush adventure you will need the help of others. Whether on times of defeat - someone who give a life, share your frustrations or on times of victory - high-fiving you for completing that level you've been stuck for several days.

4. Connection is essential 
Just like how you find time to look for the candy pattern, make time to stay connected with family, friends and loved-ones.

5.  Be grateful to luck
“Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.” 
― Dalai Lama XIV

6. Think before you click 
It's not how fast you pull the trigger. What matters is the ripple effect of that single, deliberate move. Strategy mah frend! Just like taking test examination, it doesn't matter who finish first. Respect belongs to students who did well on the test results.

7. True friends care enough to share and give life ;))

8. We all need encouragement 
Correction does much but encouragement does more.
     "Sweet!"
     "Delicious!"
     "Tasty!"
     "Divine!"
Sounds familiar? Need I add more? ;)

9. Focus on your goal 
In every season of your life set a goal and work your way out in achieving this. It's important to read the instructions whether its a game or real life. Distractions may pop up every once in awhile, as others may give unsolicited advice but its your game baby :) You call the shots!

10. Life is unpredictable
Just like how you cannot figure out what kind, shape or color of candy will show up. Make the most of what is given to you and play it well.

But if there's one most important principle I don't want to forget in playing Candy Crush --- It doesn't matter how awesome move you made, how many stars you've earned, what level you completed, what high scores you've reached. There is more to life than playing Candy Crush! Go out and meet real people. ;)

And please don't crush candies it's a way lot of fun eating them! ;)
