Life is like a journey on a train

TGIF Peeps! Instead of doing a Friday 5’s today, I thought I would share a thought of the day. I read the following in an email this morning:

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

At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and
we believe 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 i.e. 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 realize that they vacated their

This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations,
hellos, goodbyes, and farewells.

Success consists of having a good relationship with
all 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 and leave our seat empty — > we should
 leave behind beautiful memories for those who will
 continue to travel on the train of life.

I wish you a joyful journey for the coming year on the
train of life. Reap success and give lots of love.
More importantly, thank God for the journey!

 Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers on
 my train!

 BE YOURSELF……..Nobody is better qualified…….!!

I have no idea who wrote this. Typically, I will read these and delete them. However, I felt the need to share. Sometimes we all need to be reminded that we are who we are.  You can change yourself but you can’t change other people.  Be the best you possible and have no regrets.
