Life' Journey

Good Essays
Life is a journey filled with lessons, hardships, heartaches, joys, celebrations and special moments that will ultimately lead us to our destination, our purpose in life. The road will not always be smooth; in fact, throughout our travels, we will encounter many challenges.

Some of these challenges will test our courage, strengths, weaknesses, and faith. Along the way, we may stumble upon obstacles that will come between the paths that we are destined to take. In order to follow the right path, we must overcome these obstacles. Sometimes these obstacles are really blessings in disguise, only we don't realize that at the time.

Along our journey we will be confronted with many situations, some will be filled with joy, and some will be filled with heartache. How we react to what we are faced with determines what kind of outcome the rest of our journey through life will be like.

When things don't always go our way, we have two choices in dealing with the situations. We can focus on the fact that things didn't go how we had hoped they would and let life pass us by, or two, we can make the best out of the situation and know that these are only temporary setbacks and find the lessons that are to be learned.

Time stops for no one, and if we allow ourselves to focus on the negative we might miss out on some really amazing things that life has to offer. We can't go back to the past, we can only take the lessons that we have learned and the experiences that we have gained from it and move on. It is because of the heartaches, as well as the hardships, that in the end help to make us a stronger person.

The people that we meet on our journey, are people that we are destined to meet. Everybody comes into our lives for some reason or another and we don't always know their purpose until it is too late. They all play some kind of role. Some may stay for a lifetime; others may only stay for a short while.

It is often the people who stay for only a short time

    I believe that life is a journey and every moment of this journey is valuable. I came to America last August from China. This is my first visit to a foreign country. My flight took off from Beijing Capital International Airport and headed for Chicago to transfer. After 13 hours of flying, our airplane finally landed in Chicago. At that moment when my feet tread on the land of America, I was excited and a little nervous. Taking a look at this absolutely different country and those strange faces…

    Life is a journey! We live, we die! We say hello and we say goodbye… but what happens in between? The comparison of life to a journey has become to cliché. One would hear it from parents, from teachers and even from preachers, but what I’ve leant from this cliché is that despite what anyone believes, we cannot deny that life is definitely a journey. When I think about a journey, a picture of a long dusty road, over beautiful hills and plains, appears in my mind. Sometimes I’d see hikers walking…

    To go on a journey does not necessarily require one to physically move from one place to another. A journey can happen anywhere, and at any time, even if you are not moving. An inner journey is to transcend above the physical and temporal world into a spiritual realm. This enables one to look at life attentively and be alert to the lessons learnt from experience. ‘Of Eurydice’ by Ivan Lalic, ‘Fax X’ by Gwyneth Lewis, ‘Wind in the Willows’ by Kenneth Graham, ‘The Road Not Taken’ by Robert Frost, ‘The…

    Life is a journey, Not a destination Life can't be described by only one or two words. It is a mixture of everything. The mixture of happiness and sadness, success and failure, comfort and pain, love and hatred, relief and sorrow and struggle and giving up. Life is not perfect, but it is beautiful. Life is a journey, not a destination. Everyone takes every step in a very unique way. The journey may take you down by great storms and bumpy roads but it does not matter, what matters the most…
