Some of you might remember those lyrics from a Dianna Ross song back in the 70’s….but Mary wanted to remind us that we are on a journey. She likened our journey to taking a train. Sure a plane will get you there quicker, but where’s the fun in that:-)
The message was not suggesting that we travel by train all of the time, but it was meant to remind us to embrace the journey and learn from it. Think about the things that you would benefit from travelling by train. Think of the experience…the view…the time to reflect…the conversations you could have with loved ones or friends…sure the trip would take a bit longer, but there would be a calmness to the journey. You would have time with yourself…you would have time to think…you would have time to learn and grow.
So as we travel through life, don’t forget to take this reflective time…think about your journey…embrace what you have learned…and apply it…you are on this trip for a reason….it’s not just the destination…it’s about getting there.
…and this is according to Mary!
