I don’t know where exactly i came across this saying but wherever i did, it seems to have gripped onto my head.
The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win you are still a rat.
Pretty right huh? There is a thinking still prevalent in our society about our life being all about trying to be the best of the best among a ceratin cliche, and even if you are not the best just belong to that cliche for the sake of it (So that someone can brag about it). We need to be diverse for a better functioning of a society and to keep you sane. Imagine a butterfly being asked to turn into an eagle so that it owns a zooming vision. Well no.. you cant pluck out the eyes on an eagle and stick it on a butterfly. That would me insane!
Wait.. What?! Did i discover a new species? 😉 LOL 😀
Anyone recognise this? 😉
In this rat race does it matter if you are a colored different from others? So what if you are colored different from others you are still basically a rat. And if you are calling yourself a rat you need to know that there is always going to be a cat chasing you. (Even stuart little gets chased by a cat!! 😛 )
If you really think you are best among the rats then run the marathon not a race.
Where is the practicality if we all turn out as rats? Lets be different. I mean i am not asking you to be a cunning Jackal or a ferocious lepord. You can be as tall as a girraffe or a cute little Pygmy possum. As colorful as a peacock or as monochrome as a zebra. As agile as a mosquitoe or as lazy as a hippopotamus. Just be different!
There was this little personality test like thing that google put up as google doodle on world earth day (April 22) describing you as a particular animal. If you are interested take the quiz Earth day quiz and let me know what animal you are. I am a coral 😛 .
Today is International day for Biological diversity and this years theme is Biodiversity for sustainable development. Over 2 million life forms are known.. and the number is still growing. So lets promise to be different and not make the ones which are diverse, extinct.
