OUR JOURNEY TOGETHER IS TOO SHORT
A young lady sat in a bus. At the next stop a loud and grumpy old lady came and sat by her. She squeezed into the seat and bumped her with her numerous bags.
The person sitting on the other side of the young lady got upset. She asked her why she did not say something.
The young lady responded with a smile: “It is not necessary to be rude or to argue over something so insignificant. The journey together is so short; I’ll get off at the next stop.”
This response deserves to be written in golden letters:
“It is not necessary to be rude or to argue over something so insignificant. Our journey together is so short.”
If each one of us realized that our time here is so short that to darken it with quarrels, futile arguments, not forgiving others, discontentment and a fault-finding attitude would be a waste of time and energy.
Did someone break your heart?
Be calm, the journey is so short.
Did someone betray, bully, cheat or humiliate you?
Be calm, forgive, the journey is so short.
Whatever troubles anyone brings us, let us remember that our journey together is so short.
No one knows the duration of this journey. No one knows when their stop will come. Our journey together is so short.
Let us cherish friends and family. Let us be respectful, kind and forgiving to each other. Let us be filled with gratitude and gladness.
If I have ever hurt you, I ask for your forgiveness. If you have ever hurt me, you already have my forgiveness.
Smile, laugh, dance, play, relax, joke and stop reading seriousness in everything; let go of anger. Failure to do so only hurts you. The other person is moving on with life while you hold grudges.
To forgive another also heals you and helps you to let go.
After all, our journey together is so short!
