Sagada taught me that all good things come to an end. That everything that we experience in this life – even happiness and even pain – are fleeting and temporary. That feelings change, and so do people, and so do relationships. That life goes on, and that you move on, and that you always prepare for the next great adventure.
But I realized that waiting serves its purpose: it makes our choices clearer. It gives you that time to either continue or not. It gives you the choice to do other things than wait. In life, it is pretty much the same: we have a choice as to where we are and what we do. We have a choice to wait and waste time or use it for something productive. You never know, letting that first train pass by and waiting for the next can actually be a good choice.
