Life vs. Journey

Some journeys are boring, even if they have something pleasant on the other side. You keep looking at the watch to count the passing hours. The watch becomes your friend and companion in the boring journey. As you near the destination, you begin to see familiar places and landmarks. The thrill that lies at the end of the journey begins to excite you. And your wait for it is now marked by the passing familiar landmarks. You conveniently keep the watch aside, as the boring phase is almost over. Now, it’s time for pleasant things. So you forget the companion that carried you from the boring phase to the pleasant one.

A journey? Or life?

    Hey come on, that’s not life. Depends on the person, there will be those who forget the ones who stood by them, and there will be those who never can. Cannot be generalized.
    Btw, why so philosophical???

      Just a realization when I was travelling. The journey was boring and I did thought I would do exactly as I wrote above.

      Not philosophical, the label is ‘Learnings’ ๐Ÿ™‚
