Everyone has a journey… what does this mean? We are not all on the same journey or path. Nor are we all headed to the same place or beliefs. In this world there are so many different things to believe in. That’s what makes us a whole. Our beliefs should not be what divide us… they should be what unites us. We need to respect others and their beliefs. A person is not “wrong” or “bad” because they don’t have the same beliefs that you do. Get over yourself. Even your spouse… your family… or your friends do not have to have the same beliefs as you do… that’s the beauty… and adventure in your journey. Learning the different perspectives of life… with no judgement or condemnation… appreciating the many beliefs the world has to offer… for this is what makes us a whole.
My journey has led me in many different directions… and it has not always been easy… but I don’t know that I would want it easy. For me… I am who I am because… and in spite of my journey. Whatever happens on our journey… it’s not “good” or “bad”… it simply serves a purpose. It’s not important what my journey was/is because everyone’s journey is their own. It’s about learning… growing and enjoying it. Everyone has their own lessons to learn and they will also grow at their own pace… but the part about enjoying your journey should be applied no matter what is going on. You can always find joy… you just might have to look for it on purpose… because it likes to hide. It’s easy to enjoy our journey when things are flowing… it’s when we have the not so pleasant things occur in our journey that it becomes challenging to find and keep our joy.
Life is full of choices… none of them “good” or “bad.” They are just simply choices that take us through our journey.
