The Train Of Life Journey by Jean d’ Ormesson 🚂❤️
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 by 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 in our journey i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and the love(s) of our life.
Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go unnoticed where we don’t realise that they vacated the their seats. Which is very sad when you think about it.
This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes and farewell.
Success consists of having a good relationship with all the passengers… requiring that we give the best of ourselves.
The mystery to everyone on their train journey is that 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 this year on the train of life. Reap success and give lots of love. More importantly, give thanks for the journey!
Written by a French novelist Jean d’ Ormesson (1925-2017) titled, LE TRAIN DE LA VIE.
