The Rat Race
“The problem with winning the rat race is you’re still a rat.” Lily Tomlin
“None of us likes to lose, we all want to be winners. But what, exactly, does winning mean? And what if we decide that we don’t want to compete? Does this automatically make us a loser?
Maybe it’s time to get rid of the idea that life is a kind of race. What if, instead, we saw life as a kind of dance, where the idea isn’t to win but to learn new moves, execute them gracefully, and, above all, enjoy ourselves?” Linda Picone
I want to win as much as the next person, but I don’t feel obliged to accept someone else’s definition of winning. My own definition of winning is to maintain my integrity, optimism, compassion in the face of events that threaten these qualities.
So make it a great day!!!!
