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.  They will be significant.  For example:  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 seats!

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 to all the passengers.

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.
