The Rat Race

The world we live in is consumed with how much we can do in a space of 24 hours.

Spending time with family and loved ones, Fitting in time for recreational activities to feel as though working to live and not living to work. Working hard to get to “the top” (what ever that means).

What are we chasing? Money? Status? When we get to the “top” will we be satisfied? In the words of the infamous rapper Notorious B.I.G “more money more problems”

So what are we chasing…happiness? Inner fulfilment? What do these look like?

I believe that happiness is a state of mind. How many of say “if only…” “if only we had a car” “if only I can go on holiday once a year” “if only I made this decision rather than that decision”. The “if only” leads us to a place of self-doubt which robs us of seeing a situation for what it really is. A moment in time. A situation which can be appreciated as an experience whether good or bad.

Always feeling like something needs changing, I believe can be detrimental to our mental health so the question is how do we get out of this rat race.
