The Gambler

Is a gambler’s mindset a testament to human nature, and the hope which we all feel in any given scenario. Does it show that joy outweighs sorrow. The jubilation of winning  enough to keep going, even against the devastation of loss. In an instant the loss just experienced, wiped away by the excitement and euphoria of wining, the hope has prevailed, nevermimd what has happened previously, this moment is what counts. 

This is in no way an advertisement for gambling rather than an observation of human behaviour. It shows that even with all that happens in our world, the light still outshines the dark.
