The Journey is Short

An elderly woman got on a bus and sat down. At the next stop, a strong, grumpy young woman climbed up and sat down beside the old woman, hitting her with her numerous bags.

When she saw that the elderly woman remained silent, the young woman asked her why she had not complained when she hit her with her bags?

The elderly woman replied with a Smile: “There is no need to be rude or discuss something so insignificant, as my trip next to you is so short, because I am going to get off at the next stop.”

This answer deserves to be written in gold letters: “There is no need to discuss something so insignificant, because our journey together is too short.”

Each of us must understand that our time in this world is so short, that darkening it with useless arguments, jealousy, not forgiving others, discontentment and bad attitudes are a ridiculous waste of time and energy.

Did someone break your heart? Stay calm.
The trip is too short.

Did someone betray you, intimidate, cheat or humiliate you? Relax – Don’t be Stressed.
The trip is too short.

Did someone insult you without reason? Stay calm. Ignore it.
The trip is too short.

Did someone make a comment that you didn’t like? Stay calm. Ignore and forgive.
The trip is too short.

Whatever the problem someone has brought us, remember that our journey together is too short.

No one knows the length of our trip. Nobody knows when it will arrive at its stop. our trip together is too short.

Let us appreciate one another.
Let us be respectful, kind and forgiving.
Because we will be filled with gratitude and joy, after all our trip together is very short.

Whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? 
It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
James 4:14 (NKJV)
