I AM RUNNING ….with full vigor, enthusiasm and competitive spirit…
Eyes are set on the finish line…
The athletes next to me are tough and it’s a neck to neck finish possibility…
The crowd is cheering and pushing us to the limits…
The Referee and all the finish line technology are glaring at us with excitement and anticipation of the winner….
I am there ….almost there and it’s time for rejoicing the success as finish line is very close….
I look around to see the competitors disappearing
There is no crowd in the stands
Actually I can’t see the race tracks either nor the finish line
There is no cheering ….no pushing for the victory
It all looks EMPTY
It suddenly feels very light….
There is NOTHING, No rush, No urgency…
I can actually stop, breathe, just walk or may be even dance to a tune or whistle looking at the sky and enjoy the freshness around me.
May be even hold a glass of water for someone who is thirsty and tired while running ……..If at all I see anyone…
IT FEELS GOOD!
I am not heading towards the finish line as there is no need.
I am possibly going to enjoy my race track and carry on moving but this time not rushing or heading for the finish line….
When the finish line finally “approaches me” I will not even realize that I have won …. There is no need for that…
By the way….. If you are around and were in the same race – then do wave and smile…. As there is still time for a “Quick Drink Buddy “…. Chill!
