The Train Station
“Are we there yet?”
We are all riding in our own train. So what station are you now? can you tell me?
By the time we arrived at the station, we all thought that we’re sure where should we go. You’re holding your ticket with your sweaty palm while waiting on the platform. You are 100% sure that your destination is correct and you’re at the right train at the right time.
Your favorite spot is beside the window. Everyone loves that spot. Maybe because we can see the entire journey behind that window. Because behind that window, we can see how far we had been travelling. And then, a lot of thoughts will bother your mind. Am I travelling enough already? Should i get off to the next station? Am I on the right train? Right now, you’re not a 100% sure. Sometimes in life, we thought that we will be happy on the track we chose. That we’re on the right road. But in the middle of your journey, you will be in doubt.
“Ticket inspection. May i see your ticket?”
A lot of people will ask you, ” are you sure about that?”. Like in trains, the ticket inspector will ask you, “where are you heading kid? Are you on the right train?”. Then you will ask yourself, “Am I on the right train?”. You will be alarmed because the next station is approaching, and the ticket inspector is waiting for you.
“We’re heading to the next station so please be relaxed, said the operator.”
The ticket inspector saw your ticket and smiled at you. ” Hey kid, guess you’re on the right train. But you know what, train is not the only vehicle in this town.”
“Thank you for choosing our train. Hope you arrived at your destination soon”
You stood up, left the train, took a step at the platform and left the station. Why? Because your journey in the train is over. You know that if you will stay in that train, it may brought you to a different destination. It’s a brave thing to take risks and follow what you think will make you happy. That train is not a mistake because it took you far from your starting point and it also took you much closer to your destination. But hey, you’re not there yet.. You need to continue your journey to your destination.
Not that far from the Train Station, you saw a Bus terminal. Hey, train is not the only vehicle in this town right? Maybe this bus will take you to your destination or maybe this bus will take you to another terminal. Maybe a cab, or another train. Who knows. For now, just don’t stop your journey.
