I don't run the race of life, I dance it.
As I dance, I will pass all the other runners. Because as they run, they grow tired. Life grows routine, monotonous, boring. They do nothing to make them want to win. My dance is never the same, never takes a routine. I dance to my mood, my emotions, my music. It will never grow boring, never dull. I will always look forward to what step I will use next in my dance.
As I dance, I do not dance alone. My friends, my family, my loved ones, they dance along with me. Some will finish before me, some after me, but all dance with me while I'm here. Together we create light, life, music, all that will feed our dance. Together, our dance is strong. A runner runs alone and falls at the first obstacle. A dancer has many with them, to help them through whatever they must overcome, and in turn the dancer will help their fellow dancers. While one dancer may finish, the rest will dance on, and no one is forgotten or lost.
I do not run the race of life, I dance it.
I've found that there's nothing so rare as common sense.
