Everyone’s journey is unique.
We all experience life differently. It depends on the circumstances we are given and the choices we make along the way. While we may seek the same destiny as others, the road travelled is never the same.
What we do along that road though, shapes who we become and how the world sees us.
Do we promote:
The world needs more empathetic people who recognise each and everyone’s unique experiences. And it is also important to realise that we are all on our own journeys, even when we choose to travel through it with other people.
Having an idea of where we are going is important but the journey to get there is equally if not more valuable for it is the journey where we grow and change as human beings.
The circumstances you are given shape your unique journey.
Our circumstances are created by the environment we are born into and the environment we create through our choices. The country where you are born, the people who raise you, the community around you – it all influences you as a child and into adulthood.
Our environment is much more than just the walls and roof over our heads, but also the people and technology within them.
Your childhood role models’ actions, values and philosophies influence how you perceive life. They are the catalyst for your likes, dislikes, your friends, your actions and even your hopes and dreams.
It’s like the old adage when different people witness the same accident; no two people will describe the accident in the exact same fashion. Each one sees it from a different perspective or angle and their viewpoint shapes a different experience for them.
And with so many more variables in life, your journey through it is yours and yours alone.
Our choices change the journey and define us
As we grow older and wiser and become adults, we have the choice to continue to learn and grow.
We should not let our past or pain bodies define us. All too often we give our past too much influence over the present. Instead, we should acknowledge it, reflect on it and if what we learnt from our past no longer supports our journey forward, we should take action to change and learn anew in the here and now.
Each day is a new part of our journey beings and we have a chance to make new decisions. It takes courage, patience and determination to undo old habits and forge new habits that will take us one step closer to living our best lives.
