The Bullet Train and Life...

Today, we are on our way to Hiroshima via the Bullet Train. Now, aside from its shape, I understand why they call it the Bullet Train! Can we say fast!! You actually feel like your flying at the speed of a bullet. I can’t keep my eyes on any one object long enough to get a glimpse. Okay, so maybe I’m exaggerating a little! Seriously though, it is pretty fast.

Who would have thought I would be traveling on the fastest train in the world. NOT ME!! I remember seeing and hearing about it on TV, but never thought in a million years I would be cruising on it. I can say, I am truly thankful for my experience here in Japan. I have learned so much about the country and not to mention myself. I feel as though, I am truly starting to understand the meaning of life.

This is what I know, life is like a painting and we are the artist. I also know, I'd rather live life than merely exist in it. As the artist of my life, I have complete control over what appears on my canvas and it is up to me to make it a Masterpiece!
