Life is a road


Life is a road filled with landmarks.  Landmarks like growing up, different stages of academic success, financial success, self actualization, getting married, raising a family and self development and growth.  As humans, we are all on this happy/sad road. We reach these landmarks at different times and in different order. And unfortunately some people never reach some of these landmarks. We see what other people’s journeys are about but we don’t “know” what their journeys are about. We should motivate one another. Not compete with each other.

  1. So true are these words you write Bukky and they’re pretty reminiscent of one of my favorite quotes by the ‘Badass’ that’s Bruce Lee, who I was and still am totally suckers for by the way! 😈😜😆

    He says and I quote…’I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you’re not in this world to live up to mine’!

    Life is not a competition, each one is on their own journey (ori yato s’ori)! We all just gotta live according to our choices, capacities, values and principles! That’s all there is to it! Thanks gurl, this totally smarts! 👉😃

  2. well said. everyone has a perspective that is based on their journey and nobody elses. we need love and compassion for one another, not judgement based on only our own journey. we find that while we are all different, we also are exactly the same.

  3. Me ha encantado esta entrada. Aquí te dejo un corto poema de Antonio Machado (poeta español), que hace referencia al camino de la vida:

    Caminante, son tus huellas
    el camino y nada más;
    Caminante, no hay camino,
    se hace camino al andar.
    Al andar se hace el camino,
    y al volver la vista atrás
    se ve la senda que nunca
    se ha de volver a pisar.
    Caminante no hay camino
    sino estelas en la mar.

    Saludos y que tengas un feliz día

    1. I loved the poem and don’t want to ever forget it. So I am sharing it here.

      Antonio Machado ( Spanish poet ) , which refers to the way of life :
      Walker , are your footprints
      the way and nothing more ;
      Walker, there is no way,
      It is made ​​by walking .
      By walking the path becomes ,
      and looking back
      the path is never
      He has walked again .
      No walking path
      but wakes in the sea.
