Home

We’ve all heard the saying “home is where the heart is” This phrase can have many meanings of course. The most obvious meaning is a physical location: where you live. But home is so much more than a warm bed and a comfy couch. It’s love, security, and connection. Home isn’t a place as much as it is a feeling.

Home might be a bear hug from your dad, your mom’s thanksgiving stuffing. It’s the people we surround ourselves with that truly make or break a home. We all need a community of people to love, understand and support us.

Friends are also at the top of the list when it comes to being unconditionally loved and supported. From belly laughs to crying jugs best friends feel like home. You don’t have to be perfect you just have to be you!

Offering others your assistance and kindness, you are giving them a sense of security. One of the benefits of volunteering is the positive impact it has on the community. Volunteers are often the glue that holds a community together making it feel more like home.

The sensation of peace on a cozy, rainy Sunday; the feeling of relief when you pull into the driveway after a long trip; a quiet kiss on the head of a baby asleep in your lap; … Home is a place you can feel comfortable cooking breakfast in your pajamas.

Home is where love resides, memories are created, friends always belong and laughter never ends.

Home is where you feel safe, connected, understood, and loved. The more present and encouraged you are with both, yourself and the world around you, the easier it will be to feel at home anywhere you are.

Your home should tell the story of who you are, and a collection of what you love brought together under one roof.

Home is where your story begins don’t let anyone end it for you.

We carry our homes within us which enables us to fly – John Cage
