Life Is A Train!!!

  1. 1. LIFE<br />Is A Train!<br />
  2. 2. You know life is like a train. It's bearing down on you, and guess what? It's gonna hit you! So you can either start running when it's far off in the distance, or you can pull up a chair, crack open a beer, and just watch it come! <br />
  3. 3. A train trip is a pocket of space and time that’s<br />moving along just a little slower than the world<br />around it. You owe it to yourself to exist in this<br />pocket for just awhile.<br />
  4. 4. You owe it to yourself to do something where you have<br />no choice but to slow down, relax, and just be alive.<br />
  5. 5. Because the truth is that we’re not as different as we think, everyone has <br />a real life, and even the most unlikely person will teach you something. <br />People on a train are not in a hurry and that’s a blessing because <br />they’re real and they have a story you want to hear. <br />
  6. 6. We get on. We ride. We get off. We get back on and ride some more. There are accidents and there are delays. <br />
  7. 7. At certain stops there are surprises. Some of these will translate into great moments of joy; some will result in profound sorrow.<br />
  8. 8. When we are born and we first board the train, we<br />meet people whom we think will be with us for the<br />entire journey. Those people are our parents!<br />
  9. 9. Our parents are with us for as long as we absolutely need them. They too <br />have journeys they must complete. We live on with the memories of their<br />love, affection, friendship, guidance and their ever presence.<br />
  10. 10. There are others who board the train and<br />who eventually become very important to<br />us, in turn. These people are our brothers,<br />sisters, friends and acquaintances, whom<br />we will learn to love, and cherish.Some <br />people consider their journey like a jaunty<br />tour. They will just go merrily along.<br />
  11. 11. Others will encounter many upsets, tears, losses on their journey. Others still, will linger on to offer a helping hand to anyone in need.<br />
  12. 12. Some people on the train will leave an everlasting impression when they get off….<br />
  13. 13. Some will get on and get off the train so quickly, they will scarcely leave a sign that they ever traveled along with you or ever crossed your path…<br />
  14. 14. 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.<br />
  15. 15. Then again, there’s nothing that says we can’t seek them out anyway.<br />Nevertheless, once sought out and found, we may not even be able to sit<br />next to them because that seat will already be taken.<br />
  16. 16. That’s okay …everyone’s journey will be filled<br />with hopes, dreams, challenges, setbacks and<br />goodbyes.<br />
  17. 17. We must strive to make the best of it… no matter what...<br />
  18. 18. We must constantly strive to understand our travel<br />companions and look for the best in everyone.<br />
  19. 19. Remember that at any moment during our journey, any<br />one of our travel companions can have a weak moment <br />and be in need of our help.<br />
  20. 20. We too may vacillate or hesitate, even trip…<br />hopefully we can count on someone being<br />there to be supportive and understanding…<br />
  21. 21. The bigger mystery of our journey is that we don’t know when our last<br />stop will come. Neither do we know when our travel companions will<br />make their last stop. Not even those sitting in the seat next to us.<br />
  22. 22. 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 everyone else. They’ll all be carrying their baggage… most of which they didn’t have when they first got on this train.<br />
  23. 23. 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.<br />
  24. 24. We’re all on this train ride together. Above all, we should all try to strive to <br />make the ride as pleasant and memorable as we can, right up until we each<br />make the final stop and leave the train for the last time.<br />
  25. 25. “Life is like a train ride. Some people will sit next to you and talk to you. Some will just stand around…oblivious to your existence. Some will have to leave the train while you’re having a great conversation and who knows when you’ll see them again. And if you’re lucky, there’ll be those who will sit and talk to you throughout the whole journey.” <br />Thank You Very Much<br />SompongYusoontorn<br />
