Life on the Train



A while back, I read a very interesting book that compared life to a train ride or a series of train rides.

Life is like a train ride, it read. We get on.
We ride. We get off. We get back on and ride some more.
There are accidents and there are delays. At certain stops there are surprises.
Some of these will translate into great moments of joy, some will result in profound sorrow.
When we are born and we first board the train, we meet people whom we think will be with us for the entire journey. Those people a
re our parents!
Sadly, this is far from the truth.
Our parents are with us for as long as we absolutely need them. They too have journeys they must complete. We live on with the memories of their love, affection, friendship, guidance and their ever presence.
There are others who board the train and who eventually become very important to us, in turn.
These people are our brothers, sisters, friends and acquaintances, whom we will learn to love, and cherish.
Some people consider their journey like a jaunty tour. They will just go merrily along .

Others, will encounter many upsets, tears, losses on their journey.
Others still, will linger on to offer a helping hand to anyone in need.
Some people on the train will leave an everlasting impression when they get off….
Some will get on and get off the train so quickly, they will scarsely leave a sign that they ever travelled along with you or ever crossed your path…
We will sometimes be upset that some passengers whom we love, will choose to sit in another compartment and leave us to travel on our own.
Then again, there’s nothing that says we can’t seek them out anyway.
Nevertheless, once sought out and found, we may not even be able to sit next to them because that seat will already be taken.
That’s okay …everyone’s journey will be filled with hopes, dreams, challenges, setbacks and goodbyes.
We must strive to make the best of it… no matter what...
We must constantly strive to understand our travel companions and look for the best in everyone.
Remember that at any moment during our journey, any one of our travel companions can have a weak moment and be in need of our help.
We too may vacilate or hesitate, even trip… hopefully we can count on someone being there to be supportive and understanding…
The bigger mystery of our journey is that we don’t know when our last stop will come.

Neither do we know when our travel companions will make their last stop. Not even those sitting in the seat next to us.
Personally, I know I’ll be sad to make my final stop…. I’m sure of it!
My separation from all those friends and acquaintances I made during the train ride will be painful. Leaving all those I’m close to will be a sad thing. But then again, I’m certain that one day I’ll get to the main station only to meet up with everone else. They’ll all be carrying their baggage… most of which they didn’t have when they first got on this train.
I’ll be glad to see them again. I’ll also be glad to have contributed to their baggage… and to have enriched their lives, just as much as they will have contributed to my baggage and enriched my life.
We’re all on this train ride together. Above all, we should all try to strive to make the ride as pleasant and memorable as we can, right up until we each make the final stop and leave the train for the last time.



All Aboard

Have a Safe Journey!
Bon Voyage

Bon Jovi - (You Want To) Make a Memory


Music Video Codes

Artist / Band : Bon Jovi
Single Lyrics from Album : Lost Highway
Released : March, 2007 (radio)
Genre : Hard Rock

Hello again, it’s you and me
Kinda always like it used to be
Sippin’ wine, killing time
Trying to solve life’s mysteries

How’s your life, it’s been a while
God it’s good to see you smile
I see you reaching for your keys
Looking for a reason not to leave

If you don’t know if you should stay
If you don’t say what’s on your mind
Baby just breathe
There’s nowhere else tonight we should be

You wanna make a memory?

I dug up this old photograph
Look at all that hair we had.
It’s bittersweet to hear you laugh
Your phone is ringing I don’t wanna ask

If you go now, I’ll understand
If you stay, hey, I’ve got a plan
We’re gonna make a memory
You wanna steal a piece of time
You can sing the melody to me
And I can write a couple of lines

You wanna make a memory?

If you don’t know if you should stay
And you don’t say what’s on your mind
Baby just breathe
There’s nowhere else tonight we should be
We Should be

You wanna make a memory
You wanna steal a piece of time
You can sing the melody to me
And I can write a couple of lines

You wanna make a memory? (x2)

Did you know that...




...When you envies somebody is because in the truth you like her?

... Those people that looks to have a strong heart, in reality are weak ?

... Those people, whom pass all the time protecting others, are
those that actually needs somebody to protect them?

... The three things more difficult to say are: I love you, do you forgive me and can you help me?

... The people that say this, really feel the need or just feel it and are those that need to value them because they said.

... Those people who try occupy serving of company for somebody or helping the others, they are those that really need company and aid?

...those that that dress of red are the ones that has more confidence in itself?

...those that dress of yellow are those that appreciates its proper beauty?

... those that dress of black color, are those that want to pass unobserved and need your aid and understanding?

...when help somebody, that help returns you to duplicate?

...those that needs more your help are those that less mentions it?

...it is more easy to say what you feel writing than say it face to face? But has more value when you say face to face?

...and finally, you can make all your dreams came true, falling in love, became rich, healthy, just need to ask with faith, you would be susprised about the things that you can do!?

1st June, Child Day

Because you are sensitive,
Because you are unique,
Because you are our future.

How many children are abused?!
How many children are abducted?!
How many children are badly treated?!
How many need love?!



Please take care of them....
