Life is like a journey on a train
Life is like a journey on a train, with all its stations, with the changes of routes and with the delays! At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe that they will always travel on our side. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone.
As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant, our siblings, friends, children and even the love of our life. Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don’t realise that they vacated their seats! The train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all the passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.
The mystery to everyone is…. We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live the best way, love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty, we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life without us.
I wish you a joyful journey for the coming year on your train of life. Reap success, give lots of love and be happy. More importantly, be thankful for your journey! Lastly I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train!
