“They say they built the train tracks over the Alps, between Vienna and Venice, before there was a train that could make the trip. They built it anyway. They knew one day the train would come. Any arbitrary turning along the way and I would be elsewhere, I would be different. What are four walls, anyway? They are what they contain. The house protects the dreamer. Unthinkably good things can happen even late in the game. It’s such a surprise.” Under the Tuscan Sun
There are moments in life when we are ”building the tracks” for a train that we know will come one day. When we are in the building phase, our creativity, curiosity and exploration lead the way. We might not know what will become of what we are building, what we know for sure is that we are letting our “Dreamer” lead the way.
Every ending is a new beginning; every new beginning is an end. The beauty of this, is that we do not need to wait for New Years to build, to dream, to create or to set goals. The present moment we are in, can be the new beginning we dream of, the new way of seeing life that will give us peace, a healing moment to let the old go and allow for the new to come in.
One of the greatest lessons I have learned is that each of us has the power to create what we want to create. To live the life, we want to live. To follow our hearts to what we know is our truth. Even though we do not know what the future will hold for us, trusting ourselves that we are on the right path is what sets us free.
The best time to love is TODAY. The best time to start something new is TODAY. The best time of your life is TODAY. The best time to follow your heart and curiosity is TODAY. The best time to be who you truly are is TODAY. The best time to find peace is TODAY. The best time to build the life you dream of is TODAY!
Let your heart guide you, enjoy and appreciate being alive, be grateful for your loved ones, accept who you are and where you are in life, dream as though you have never dreamed before. Start building the train tracks, because you know the train will come someday!
