Very appropriately as we bid farewell to the good old year of 2018 & welcome in the new year of 2019, that we take a moment to look back at our life . . . so as to have a better perspective of life ahead. Life is like being on “The Train of Life” – be it a High Speed Train or a traditional one.
It is my utmost pleasure to share this relevant story with you.
“Life is like a journey on a train . . . with its stations . . . with changes of routes . . . and with both thrills & spills and accidents too!
At birth we boarded the train & met our parents, & we believe they will always travel on our side & be with us. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us to travel on alone.
As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant, as with our siblings, friends, children, & even the love of our life. Many will step down & leave the train & leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don’t realise that they vacated their seats . . . which is very sad when you think about it!
This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes & farewells. Success consists of having 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 in 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 & leave our seays empty – we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.
I wish you a happy journey this year on the train of life. Reap success & give lots of love. More importantly, give thanks for the journey! Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train!”
Wishing All My Readers A Joyous New Year!
