Why do we treat life like Bingo?

Bingo!

Finally, something has been gained, something has been won, all my chips fell into place perfectly. Is life really supposed to be like this? If not, why do we often fall into the trap of thinking of it that way? Why is it so easy for me to sit here and yell ” Hooray,” whenever something goes my way and mumble ” Uggg,” when it seems that nothing ever goes as I planned. Then when a bunch of things like up just perfectly I rally get excited about it. But .. this isn’t how life ought to be thought of, right? And I know it, yet we fall so easily into this pattern. But why?

I think the reason we fall so easily into this pattern is because we live in a world of rewards and punishments. In this case we are seeking life out as a reward ceremony. We anxiously wait for what we hope is out name to be called so that we can walk up on stage and make a heartfelt speech through our tears.Yet, we forget that although our culture lives in the way of rewards versus punishments, on a human level this fails. It fails to give us anything substantial to live for in our lives and creates a environment of chasing after things that we will never receive.So to fix this problem in our own lives, we need to remind ourselves that when things go out way it is not a way of thinking we are closer to some grand Bingo jackpot but rather that we are learning to experiencing the good around us.

Life is not a game of Bingo… Remember that and you shall find a lot more of a jackpot than if it were.
