I have traveled to Europe twice which from a "farthest from home" perspective would be the farthest in miles, however, I want to write about my intellectual journey through history as the topic of this post.
Joy can be a difficult thing to find at times with all the trials and tribulations of life. Some of my most joyful moments have come on the back end of great sorrow, disappointment, and difficulty. I don't know if you can have one without the other. To truly understand joy, you must understand some degree of suffering to appreciate joy.
