UBC Jul 6 - Winners Losers Travellers

Ultimate Blogging Challenge  and  NaBloPoMo - Day 6 and my 500th post!

In life there are no winners or losers, only travellers

Yesterday I came across a very interesting post from Jayanta on popular stories with a twist in particular The Hare and the Tortoise. And after reading his post I posted a comment that became the Daily thought of this post.

When I was young, I wanted to race through life, I couldn't wait to get everywhere, confident that no matter what I did, I couldn't lose. When you are young you have this limitless energy, a zest for achieving, the outer things become important. Happiness, excitement and energy come from that competitive streak. I was probably like the hare, confident, ambitious and competitive. To win was exhilarating. Life always had to accelerate from 0 to 200 in a fraction of a second.

But now I want to be like the tortoise, slowly meandering through life and savouring each moment. My happiness and excitement comes from the little things - like the Camellias that bloom in Winter in my garden, the birds that come to feed on leftover bread, the beautiful trees that line my street, the hills that look so serene and peaceful, the clouds in the sky that make new shapes each moment. My joy comes from within in connecting with and surrendering to my Divine Lord. I have a zest for living not achieving, my energy comes from quiet meditation, devotional music and Nature.

I didn't win the race when I was young nor did I lose.
I'm not winning any race now, nor am I losing.

Each of us travel the journey of life at our own pace, in our own way and hopefully in joy.

In life there are no winners or losers, only travellers.

Travel well in your own way and enjoy your journey.


Warm Regards

  5. I believe Suzy that this comes with age, when you gain confidence to see the world through your own eyes and not through a travel guide ... The best part of travel is the people you meet on the way. HUGS <3

  6. Winning/ Losing has become an integral part - Afer Every event we analyze - which side of the fence we are. Tough to come out of this rigmarole , but with dedicated approach I think it shud be achievable

  15. That's a delightful read, Suzy. It is so important to develop this kind of awareness and acceptance about how one's attitude to so many things in life changes, including the pace at which we want to live and work through the life. Thoughtful and insightful indeed!
