We all have days (weeks, months, years…) where we feel unsettled. Times when we feel like *home* is a far-fetched idea that we cannot obtain.
Sometimes it is because we are looking in all the wrong places — we are seeking outside ourselves when home is really just a feeling.
People can elicit this sense of safety, comfort, love, devotion, gratitude, etc within us — and it makes us feel at home.
Places can give us those feelings. Animals do too.
We can also create those feelings within ourselves — no assembly required.
We are always *home* within ourselves. We can be our own safe haven.
I’ve had friends say to me I haven’t felt like I’ve had a real home in years… *Home* means many things to many people — and I can almost guarantee that none of the answers will match up exactly. But, I remember looking at this person and saying, you make me feel at home. And they did. I didn’t need the house or the car or the extravagant *things*… I just needed them.
Home is where you make it. And, remember, you can always take it with you.
