“Life is a Journey” is an adage passed down generations and today at the first quarter of twenty first century, a person like me does not have other dynamic phrase to describe life than to replicate the same phrase, “life is a JOURNEY.” The journey back and forth, journey up and down, the journey east to west, journey through pleasure and pain and of course the journey towards the path of success and towards the edge of failure.
The path that we choose is never by choice the path towards perfection, nor it is a path of insanity but as we humans lack the power to forecast the result of our present deeds instantly (we can imagine and predict things though) so we are prone to err. We are never sure whether the path, which we travel, will lead us to the destiny of success or other way. It might doom us in disarray of disappointment.
While it becomes prominent and imperative for us to take vivid decisions by using our inborn instincts, it is never a certain decision we are taking. Who knows our instinct based decision of following the major populace at a midpoint of roads may lead us to the crematorium where the folk actually proceed for the funeral of dead body. The journey of life therefore is never as easy as boarding an express train and taking a deep slumber until we reach the final destination.
Life indeed is the greatest gift of God and we human beings are the most fantastic creation of God. We do not have potential to fly like birds but we can conquer the space and explore the farthest. We do not have latent habit to swim like alligators but we can reach the depth of oceans. We lack the ability of rodents like rats and porcupines to burrow the soil but we can connect the different world via tunnels and what not we can do many more though we are helpless physically, Why? Only because we have started the journey of life by making the best use of our inherent ability of think and reason. Our ability to speak out what we think and make judgment and reason out the complexity of this world defines our existence human beings, which other creatures are devoid of it.
So while living a life and longing for success, we have to make the best use of our mental aptitude and thinking ability in making our own decisions and step forward, the journey of life, rather than sitting idly in the corner dumb folded like a crackpot waiting for a jackpot, which in reality is a dreary dream. It is never too late to start something new and to begin any endeavour/ task, or better late than never. To proceed and achieve the miracles of life ahead, we should begin our task patiently from the minute yet important, a single step, for journey of thousand miles begins with a single step.
"To get through the hardest journey we need take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping"
