What does home mean to me?

What does home mean to me?

Home is a place where you’re accepted. You can be you, and everyone is okay with that. Your home can be anywhere, the park, your room, or even at school. You will be accepted anywhere. Mistakes are approved at home. In other words, home means a comfortable place where you are free to explore anything. The sky isn’t the limit, because there is no limit. It’s home.

I feel at home when I am listening to calming music and drawing. Yours could be anything and anywhere. The thing about home is that it’s all up to you. Oliver Wendell Holmes once said, “Where we love is home – home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.”

You do not have to know where home is right now. There’s plenty of time to explore, but you will know when you find it. This is home. We have all said it, but what does this mean? Some think home is where you live, or where you sleep. I believe that home is where you always feel warm inside, and you want to stay there forever. This is home.
