A Walk to Remember

Dear Diary,

After a lot of contemplation, I have arrived at the conclusion, that human beings are cowards. The main focus of my thoughts were, on how we, humans run away from things. Isn't this, a feature of cowardice?

If you, ever carefully observe humans, you will find them always running. Running for the bus or train. Running away from relationships, away from responsibility, away from our feelings and emotions. Running away from life, and its constant supply, of troubles from some unending source. Running to come first in the rat race. Just running.......

What we fail to realise, is that when we run away from something, we are running towards something.

We often go through life, like shire horses wearing blinkers. While, we are constantly running to and fro, we miss the beautiful moments, that life offers us. In our attempt, to reach the destination, we miss the journey: the sights, sounds and smells it has to offer.

The more we run away, from something, the more it catches up with us.

The wisest thing, to do is to ' STOP RUNNING' and 'START WALKING.' It may sound funny, but if you think about it, it will make sense. Walk through life, at your own pace and face every problem, head on. Everybody is running, You be different, Walk it out.

The road is the same, the destinations is common. It depends on you, whether you want to reach it panting, or smiling. Make your life ,a walk to remember: one, that you can cherish forever.

They say tough times don't last, tough people do,

Be tough, Be different, Be you,

The Sunday Visitor.


  1. I really liked this post! It takes tough stuff to make it through the tough times but in the end its worth it :)

  2. but very few people would like to face a situation or difficulty. instead they think running away is much more easier. our psychology teacher was telling us the other day: "its always fight or flight situation for human beings. majority of us prefer to run away rather than fighting the situation, be it even the smallest of dangers like a stray dog chasing you. people always feel running is more convenient than walking in such a situation though we all know walking is safer than running away from the dog."

  3. "Make your life ,a walk to remember: one, that you can cherish forever." This should be written on a poster and hung on every wall, Judygirl! I love to walk, I cannot run, I do not choose to run away from life or toward the finish line. I will surely get there soon enough, for now I want to walk slowly and enjoy the scenery and adventures along the way!

  4. I'm so glad that you enjoyed the post and the quote! I love your positive outlook. I think one can discover a lot by walking and that gives me an opportunity to think too!
