Be caring this week, regardless of what the world around you does. Care more about the people you encounter this week than ever before.
Be the flavor in the week of your family and friends. Do the things that make you you, reminding them of why they chose you as a friend. It is the week before Christmas and everyone caught up in the material. Show the best part of your humanity.
Be kind this week because you don’t always know the impact it will have on someone’s life. Everyday this week be nice to someone you don’t know.
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.
