Life Isn’t A Race

Life is a complex set of mechanism with as many connotations & combinations that we can decipher. One of which is clearly established that measures our rate of success as compared to our peers, which we have adversely labelled as a ‘rat race’. This thoughtful quote from an uncredited source which advocates everything is primed and bound to materialize at an opportune time. Don’t look back on your past and ponder on what you have lost or left behind, but acknowledge what you’ve achieved and how far you’ve come on your strengths. Stay positive!

New York is 3 hours ahead of California,
but that doesn’t make California slow.
Someone graduated at the age of 22,
but waited 5 years before securing a good job.
Someone became a CEO at 25,
and died at 50.
While another became a CEO at 50,
and lived to 90 years.
Someone is still single,
while someone else got married.
Obama retired at 55,
& Trump started at 70.
Everyone in this world works based on their time zone.
people around you might seem to be ahead of you,
& some might seem to be behind you.
But everyone is running their own race, in their own time.
Do not envy them & do not mock them.
They are in their time zone, and you are in yours
Life is about waiting for the right moment to act.
So, relax.
You’re not late.
You’re not early.
You are very much on time.
