That's not to say that you shouldn't have goals and try to do better and make progress in your life.  It just means that you should take time to enjoy your progress, smell the roses and have fun.  No matter what you have been through, you are still here so you must not be finished yet! 

So this story is a few months old, but I have been in a really crappy mood lately, and today I ran across a story about Midge - a cat that only has one eye.  She doesn't let that stop her from having fun and enjoying life though - she keeps her eye (no pun intended) on the prize and runs the race.

Almost every day, Midge's owner Martin Humphreys jogs around his town in England.  One morning Midge joined him, Martin noticed that whenever he started to speed up, Midge did too!  She wouldn't let him pass and always made sure to beat him.  Martin decided it was time to settle this once and for all. He decided they would battle it out in a great race and he made a documentary about it.  He turned Midge's story into a short film, wrote a soundtrack and asked a children's choir to sing. 

Now, The Great Race was screened at the 2009 Film Festival.
