Why We Are Rats…

The problem with winning the rat race is you’re still a rat. – L.M. Montgomery

a new day!

We are all like rats aren’t we? We go milling about, with our nose to the ground, just like rats, looking for that elusive thing or person that will truly satisfy our deepest desires.

We satisfy some desires, are never deeply satiated, and move on to the next thing! We repeat this process while enjoying some bliss, enduring pain and experiencing loads of worry and anxiety.

To what end?

What’s our goal?

Till when?

What’s next?

What would happen if the rats stopped, looked around, even looked above? What’s the way out? Lot’s of questions to ponder and ruminate on!


Today I AM consciously exiting the rat race! I’ll seek deeper meaning in life and think about grander goals. I’ll reflect more often and be aware of my thoughts and intentions. By doing so I’ll allow the Spirit in me to have more leeway over me. As I deepen this partnership life will become even more amazing and the opportunities to love and serve will accelerate!
