Definition Realization

I looked up the definition of the word journey and was amazed when I read the following...

jour·ney
ˈjərnē/

noun
noun: journey; plural noun: journeys
1. an act of traveling from one place to another.
"she went on a long journey"

synonyms: trip, expedition, excursion, tour, trek, voyage, junket, cruise, ride, drive,jaunt, road trip; More

2. a long and often difficult process of personal change and development.
"her spiritual journey towards Roman Catholicism"

verb

1. travel somewhere.
"they journeyed south"

I know that this definition may not rock your world, but it really did something for my spirit.  I think I need to constantly remind myself I am on a journey, and that everyone else is too.  And that it IS "A long and difficult process of personal change and development."  

We all handle process differently, and we are all constantly going through different things in our hearts and spirits and bodies and minds.  I am resolving to stop judging other's journeys, and to attempt to focus more on my own hand in hand with my creator.

God has granted me grace, and I owe it to others.  We are all traveling somewhere, and this life holds journey after journey.
