My journey

I consider my life a journey. I have gone through so many paths in my life through the desert, the dry land, the valley and the productive land. Well, I don't think it has been my own making but God's grace. Ever since I was a kid my mum used to tell me I am on the road with my own car and I am the one to determine if my journey will come to an end if my car tyre gets a puncture. I did not understand her so well back then, and it's unfortunate she did not live long enough to elaborate. I know understand what she meant at that time; I have a choice to determine where I am going. That "puncture" reflect the challenges I'll meet on my way to attain my goals and reach my destiny. Will I choose to dance to the pity party tune when challenges come my way, or will I stand strong and tell myself I can do it, it'll all come to pass?

My life is a journey, I'm not there yet, am still on the road still determined, strong, patient, and hopeful that I will be there and nothing will stop me. I wonder how you view your life?Am grateful to my late mum she taught me well for the eight years she was by my side, that is the longest time God could allow her to be with me but it feels like an eternity because her words keep me going and moving.

What a shame you lost your mother so early. That was a very wise metaphor she gave you. My grandmother used to say, "As you make your bed, so shall you lie on it", meaning pretty much the same but I love the "puncture" idea of being strong to work at any difficulties.

Very nice to hear you story my friend. Trust God and god will always be there with good people. Nice to meet you here.

It reminds me of Marilyn Monroe's character in 'Bus Stop' when she had mapped out her life on a chart.

How wonderful you can still learn from your mother's wisdom even though she left you so early. I am so sorry for that loss.

yes MegL she left me so early but I have learnt to be strong over time. and "As you make your bed, so shall you lie on it" I hope I will pass it on to my children too.
