I spent an afternoon with an old friend yesterday.

After much discussion about the current state of our lives, we agreed that life is like a series of train rides.  The train cars vary, some are lux and comfortable, while others are dimly lit and unsettling.  The passengers in the car can be loving and supportive or fun and light, while some others are irritating and negative.  You get the picture.  The thing is, once you recognize which train you are on, you can choose to exit, and wait for the next train.

The trains keep running.  The train today may not be right for tomorrow, but you can choose to catch the next one.  You must be willing to get off the train and determined to board the next one with no look backward.

Which train are you on?  Do you like the ride?  Do you know where you are headed?  How is the ride affecting you?
