A journey, not a destination!

Problems are present in everyone’s lives but it seemed that
problems never wanted to let go off her. Just when one problem was solved there
was always another one demanding her attention. And the problems she faced weren’t
silly issues- there was her parents’ health to worry about and then her
siblings who always kept asking her for help with all their problems and as if
that wasn’t enough, she had a lot of issues at work too. But people always kept
wondering why she would be smiling always if she had to face so many problems.
Yes she had smile on her face- but that wasn’t the case before.
Not long before she had decided to give it all up and run
away from her problems. But the running away didn’t help. She had her goals in
mind but was nowhere close to where she wanted herself to be. And then one day
as if like a blessing in disguise she met with an accident that changed her
life. Those days spent on the hospital bed were the days of her transformation.
It was when she had escaped death that she’d realized how much life was worth.
May be she hadn’t reached where she wanted to be, but then she could always
take a step closer to it. And giving it all up would only ensure that she never
reached her goals. There was so much to learn from life each day and so much to
improve. Life wasn’t destination after all- it was a journey!

    we never stop learning, but we need to take what we learn and practice it. I cannot wait to see the future of my journey!

  3. True, life is a journey to be savoured at every step we take, instead of rushing to the destination.
