Enough. Of. The. Fucking. Journey.

I am so fucking sick of the word journey. It is a fine word in the right place, but it is so ridiculously overused that I am tired of it.

The definition of journey according to the Oxford dictionary is:

NOUN

  1. an act of traveling from one place to another:

    “she went on a long journey”

VERB

  1. travel somewhere:

    “they journeyed south”

Great, let’s use it for those reasons. The trend of late is when people go through anything and I do mean ANYTHING they talk of their journey.

Examples I have seen lately are too numerous to mention, but think Biggest Loser, Masterchef, Youtube videos a bugazallion, books, blogs, websites, divorces, career changes, completion of studies, oh I can’t even be fucked listing them to be honest.

I am trying to remember what we used to say before this word became so overused, surely we said something? Surely we had other options when we discussed change, transformation or positive growth? Anyone, anyone, Bueller Bueller????

Anyway I think it’s time to start an anti-journey revolution. I am going to find a new word and start using it.

Just give me a bit of time to journey my way through it and I will let you know once my journey is over.
