Greetings from New York City!
Last night, riding the train back to Astoria from the Bronx I was thinking about this idea as it relates to life:
If the train doesn't stop at your station > it wasn't your train.
It touched my heart right where it needed it - a simple (yet profound!) pivot from disappointment - which I know in one way or another we're constantly grappling with - setbacks, plans, deals and relationships that don't work out - to the peace that something better for us is on it's way.
I was so entranced by this idea - that I literally missed my train stop! I got off, disoriented (and way off course!) and stumbled upon a magical late night scene of music, art and eclectic people in Washington Square. Taking it in, I realized, as well:
No need to fear getting off at the wrong stop either -
that merciless stress about the right path, the right choice - it's all Ok! Even a seemingly "wrong" stop will land you somewhere interesting! Leading to your highest good.
** Imagine, wherever you are right now being exactly where you're supposed to be. **
That's all for my profound train analogies! >> What do you think about these ideas in your own life?
One of the ways I try make the world a brighter place is through illustrations for children (of all ages 😉 😉). The drawing below is part of a forthcoming artist-collective coloring book.
Feel free print, color and share with children in your life!
