Meaning of Home

Most people think of home as a place. But to me, home is a feeling. What I love most about home is who I share it with. Home is a place I grew up wanting to leave and now as I am growing up, I don’t want to leave anymore. Home is where I played, laughed cried, and learned. It’s where I grew up. It’s where I became me, a strong, intelligent, young boy. I believe home is more than four walls and a roof over my head. It’s the feeling that greets me when I walk through the door. It’s the people that wait for me to get home. It’s the people that care for me and love me. Home is made of experiences and moments in life that helped to change me and taught me to become a better person. No matter where I go in the future, my foundation will always sit firmly in this environment and with these people who have formed me as a person. Home has taught me how to live. Plus, I know that I can always come back home. After all, home is where the heart is.
