What Home Really Means to Me

What home really means to me

I don’t think I have ever thought about what home really means to me, but I think after a lot of thought I think I finally got it. Home is a place were lots of dreams and wishes come to life, there might be some troubles, but I think everything happens for a reason here is a quote that I think explained that (There’s no place like home) by John Howard Payne. I think that home means a lot but some of the most important things that home means to me after a lot of thinking and they are, learning new things, happiness and memories.

When I think of home, I think of learning new things and having someone to teach new things to me without feeling judged and not having to do it in a time limit. I think that home is a very special place to try new things. I love to try new things at home because it feels more comforting, being able to just take your time and take breaks whenever. It’s a great space to accomplish new things. That’s one thing I think of when I think of home.

When I think of home, I think of happiness. When I am at home, I always want to be happy and make people happy because I love it when my home feels calm and happy. when you have a dark and sad home it doesn’t make up want to do anything and you are not motivated to do anything, and you might not be able to sleep. it makes you have some anxiety and that’s never good, it makes you feel like you are closed behind doors.

When I think of home I think of memories, I think of home. Like when me my brother and sister were in the living room dancing to our favorite pump-up song, and I was wearing my sister’s slippers that were way to big. Home is filled with lots of fun and crazy memories. Where there’s home there’s always memories. I also think of the time I almost set my microwave on fire in my new house! When my siblings and I went for a big walk in our filed and we had a walking trail close, and we met this dog wearing sunglasses and a t-shirt.

I think that home is everything and if you have a roof over your head, I consider that home. It doesn’t matter where you are it just matters if you are with the people, you truly love. I love to come home to my comforting home and the end of the day and feel safe. I think after thinking about it and now I am truly grateful for having such a great home.

That’s why I chose these for my three main things that home means to me.
