Life is a journey to be experienced to its fullest. This is my view at least, the willingness to accept challenges put before you, the world is a very small place yet it is also vast in its entirety. We so often forget the wonder of the world and all it has to offer – why? Quick answer: because we are so busy living our lives it often escapes us. Do you remember when you were a child and how amazing everything appeared to you then? Seeing your first rainbow, the snow falling for the very first time, your first holiday the sea and its vastness (even if it was only Skegness!) Just the pure wonder of it all. Well, as unusal as it may seem, I still feel like that about many things (yes I am a grown up now just incase your wondering)! I am lucky that I still remember how it felt to experience those innocent parts of life for the first time – maybe its because they are all I have to hold on to from my childhood.
I still stand in wonder at that perfect rainbow following a summer shower, or hold my breath for a second when approaching the seaside for the first time in a while. My point is life can all to easily distract you from the wonder of the world around you, if you stop the world and get off for just a little while it will be a break worth taking – trust me on this I do it often. Life is a runaway train with many stations … the journey is what you make of it.
As adults we hold our destiny in the palm of our hands, we determine our own fate for the most part, we may not realise it sometimes, however depending on which doors we choose to open in our life or what station we get off at these decisions will determine our over all fate in the end. So as someone once said to me many years ago, “choose your path carefully and look both ways!”
