Life is Like A Journey On A Train

Life is like a journey on a train…
with its stations…
with changes of routes…
and with accidents !

We board this train when we are born and our parents are the ones who get our ticket.
πŸš‚πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹
We believe they will always travel on this train with us.
πŸš‚πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹
However, at some station our parents will get off the train, leaving us alone on this journey.
πŸš‚πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹
As time goes by, other passengers will board the train, many of whom will be significant – our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life.
πŸš‚πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹
Many will get off during the journey and leave a permanent vacuum in our lives.
πŸš‚πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹
Many will go so unnoticed that we won’t even know when they vacated their seats and got off the train !
πŸš‚πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹
This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, good-byes, and farewells.
πŸš‚πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹
A good journey is helping, loving, having a good relationship with all co passengers…
and making sure that we give our best to make their journey comfortable.
πŸš‚πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹
The mystery of this fabulous journey is :
We do not know at which station we ourselves are going to get off.
πŸš‚πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹
So, we must live in the best way – adjust, forget, forgive and offer the best of what we have.
πŸš‚πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹
It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to leave our seat… we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.”
πŸš‚πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹πŸš‹
Thank you for being one of the important passengers on my train… don’t know when my station will come… don’t want 2 miss saying: “Thank you”
