Bailing Out of the Rat Race


welcome to the maze

welcome to the maze

The way I see it, the problem with life is people are always in a hurry – in a hurry to make a decision, in a hurry to prove something, and in a hurry to lose control. Nobody seems to have an idea on how to slow down. It’s like a rat race and everybody’s trying to outdo one another through a series of complicated mazes without any idea on where they’re going.

What most people don’t realize is that life is never about rushing things.  It is about making things as simple as possible.  It’s about taking all the pieces one by one in a slow rhythmic motion and enjoying the moments while doing it.

If 365 days make a year then what makes your day? your year? Can you honestly say that your life is great if you can’t even recall a single moment when you actually felt happy and contented? Do you want to spend the rest of your life going through mazes without a clear view of what you want or where you’re headed?

Bailing out of the rat race does not mean that you are quitting. It only means that you have finally found what it is that you’ve been looking for. If you can only slow down and stop doing things in a hurry all the time then you will probably be able to see that one right path that’s laid out for you.

Am beginning to see mine. And in time I’ll be able to get a clearer picture of what lies ahead.

Still don’t see yours? Don’t fret. Slow down. Have patience. And before you know it, you’re standing right in front of it.
