If you’ve ever had the experience of going to look for a new or used car, you may have heard these words from the salesman, “You will get a lot of mileage out of this car.”
That offer means, in the salesman’s opinion, that the car will be dependable; and you’re assuming that you will get a lot of miles on the car, and it won’t it leave you stranded.
Everyone likes to hear those types of offers while shopping for a vehicle.
This brings to my mind a totally different thought of what the word “mileage,” can mean, as well.
Have you ever been taught something in life that seems to pop up in your mind when you don’t know which way to go at a fork of the road?
After awhile, you start to acknowledge that what you were taught is starting to become of importance to you, and that what you were taught never seemed to fail you when you don’t know what to do.
You start to pay attention, and begin to realize what you were taught is high-quality and has a lot of mileage going for you on a day-to-day basis. In time, you see what you were taught as something to put into practice and teach others, because it’s a desirable approach to bringing joy and happiness into the world.
Many times, we are taught things and they work for one day or for a short period of time and over our head they go, they never made a impact or even served a purpose in our life.
Then, we have those who teach things that become a part of our well-being that never tarnishes, becomes old, out dated or forgotten. It’s training that has been taught with excellence from start to finish of our life. It’s training that has given extraordinary concrete mileage and never leaves you stranded for a moment.
You may have already learned “When a good person dies, a thousand lights go out. And it is said, a giant library is lost.” That’s a short message, however, a lasting impact to mankind. That statement comes into reality when there is something we want and the other person is no longer their to help us with that need in our life.
We must realize, we take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little bit of each other everywhere we go.
We should all learn to share the eloquence of ourselves with each other and the dignity and respect of the gifts we have with those around us. We should bring out the best of what we know as an example of ourselves, that can be left behind, shared, and nurtured for others to learn from.
