Every moment of your life should be measured
by just how far it takes you from the ordinary.
(from a Travel magazine)
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: our siblings, friends, children and even 'life'. Many will step down leaving a permanent vacuum; others will go so unnoticed that we don't realize that they vacated.
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. They mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So we must live in the best 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 memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.
I wish you a joyful journey every year on your 'train of life'. Gather success! Give lots of Love!

Today I interviewed my Grandmother for part of a research paper I'm working on for my Psychology class. When I asked her to define success, in her own words she said, “Success is when you look back at your life...and the memories make you smile.”
Undeniable Facts of Life
(Dilu, I graciously thank you for this advice)
Don't educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be Happy...so when they grow up they will know the value of things, not the price.

The One who loves you will never leave you because even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he will find one reason to hold on.
There is a lot of difference between human being...and being human. A Few understand it.
You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between, You have to manage!

Enjoy the Trip called LIFE...whether you chug over roads that are rough and bumpy
or coast the rails through long winding tunnels to glorious snowy mountain peaks…
shouting o’er the lush deep valleys, “WOW! What a Life!”
Hunter S. Thompson stated,
Life should not be a journey to the grave
with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body,
but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke
thoroughly used up…totally worn out... loudly proclaiming,
“WOW! What a Ride!”
