Journey – an act of traveling from one place to another
Something that can be challenging for a man is to find joy in the mundane or in the routine. Life has a few peaks and many valleys, so a lot of the time we find ourselves on the grind.
The grind can feel exhausting, but it’s while on the grind that we discover a lot about ourselves. It’s here where we find our purpose and meaning.
As we embrace the fact that character is built through struggle, we begin to find joy. As we begin to find joy, we start to look forward to what lies before us, and we become grateful for it.
