Inspirations Lighten Up Purpose of Life Steps on the Journey

* Life is like … British Rail

British Train Journey

We all know life is a journey. We get on, we ride and we get off.

Although we hope it will go smoothly, we realize that it will likely have its highs and lows.

There are surprises, accidents and delays as well as adventures and moments of joy.

People join us and then get off at different stops along the way. And that’s okay. They are on their own journey.

Everyone has their own train ride filled with hopes, dreams, setbacks, broken parts, accidents and goodbyes.

Most of us come on with baggage. Some lose it on the journey, others not.

We don’t know when and where the last stop will come.

Yes. Life is like British Rail.

  1. yes, crowded and uncomfortable – sigh! Eve


  2. And sometimes the wrong kind of snow falls on the tracks. o_O

    [N.B. this is an in-joke for British readers only]


  3. Love the analogy – especially about the baggage! And, someone else mentioned Harry Potter today – and now seeing this – I think it’s a sign to watch it tonight!


  4. …and there will be gorgeous views and black tunnels. What a fitting analogy, loved it.


  5. In the Stillness of Willow Hill

    And each scene disappears quite quickly….while we remain in stillness


  6. Love this thought Val and all the other comments. 🙂


  7. That’s a very romantic picture of a British Rail train! 😉 Indeed, I would venture the view that it isn’t British Rail! (Sorry, just the mood I’m in this morning!) But love the metaphor!

    Lovely metaphor, dear Val. Appreciating the journey of others as they come and go can be a challenging…and where some of our most profiund moments of growth and healing lie. Thank you for this image. I shall carry it this day as i experience and observe.


    • Thank you for stopping by Carrie and sharing your thoughts. Accepting that others have their own journeys to travel, and they may come and go, is a rich place for personal evolution.
