I’ve come a long way!

  • From the anthill to the hallway to the sugar cube to the anthill is a long way for an ant.
  • From the farmers to the market is a long way for the rice grain.
  • From the egg to the chick to the chopping table is a long way for the chicken.
  • From the bed to the bath and back to the bed is a long way for an ailing elderly person.
  • From the bed to the bathroom to dining table to school gate to class is a long way for a toddler.

  • After an overwhelmingly occupying morning with the kitchen and kids, from the bath to the dresser to the dining table to the vehicle through the traffic to the office campus gate to the elevator to the desk to the login is a long way for a working mom.

    So, when we say, "I’ve come a long way", could it really mean that we have been through some experiences worth our while?

    • Dreams take us a long way than the Waking hours.
    • Struggles take us a long way than the Effortlessness.
    • Failures take us a long way than the Successes.
    • Understanding takes us a long way than Indifference.
    • Forgiveness takes us a long way than Grudge.
    • Truth takes us a long way than Falsity.
    • Love takes us a long way than its absence.
    The next time you say or hear ‘ I have come a long way’ from someone, watch for these pointers - Dreams, Struggles, Failures, Understanding, Forgiveness, Truth, Love.  Along the way, the person would have seen or been through one or all of these experiences that makes her say " I've come a long way'
