When one starts on a journey it is important to have a destination in mind, and the best one is home. It is good to spend time away seeing what is happening in the rest of the world. You get the chance to see that not everything is like you or about you. Most of all, you learn to appreciate home.
I had no idea where this journey would lead when I started it in January of 2019. It has taught me much about myself and what I think of things. I have learned important things about traveling. Number one, have a plan. Know where you are going or what the purpose of going is.
By dissecting this thing called a journey, I was able to look at it from different aspects. Things like how you get there, what you take,who you take with you all affect the journey. Those type of things can make it memorable or disastrous.
I met people who don’t look like me or think like me. Sometimes my journey was about someone else.
I know now why I love home. Every home is different and usually caters to its residents. Hopefully it is a sanctuary where you find peace from the outside world. And it is dressed in love like painted walls. At the end of your journey, I hope you find yourself in a place that is full of hope, love, peace and joy.
When we are on a journey that we are visitors. Depending on the location and the accommodations we are usually made to feel welcome. We need to be reminded that this place is not home. It is temporary.
We need to show the journey respect, even though we fall in love with new places because we have had a new experience there. We are visitors.
When you are on a journey try fine dining. It is nice to sit with table cloths and china. Take moments to make yourself feel special.
When you visit new places always find cool places to eat. I love finding new places that make my favorite food.
When you take a journey make sure there are accessories that help you along the way. One of my favorites is the travel pillow. It reminds me that certain areas of my body need support. Soft things are good and comfortable. Being able to keep it handy is a plus.
You Have To Speak To It.
The Bible tells us that we have to speak to the things we encounter. The words that come from our mouth bring either life or death. It tells us to guard our hearts because out of it comes our words.
