“Home is where you feel at home and are treated well.” -The Dalai Lama
Do you have a place where you feel secure, content, and happy? Or maybe a place where you feel connected with the ones you love? A place where you look forward to returning after a busy day at work? Well, the answer which comes to your mind is your home.
Finding Your Home
You do not have to look for grand mansions to feel at home, you just have to be in your comfort zone. It is a place which invokes a sense of yearning and emptiness in you whenever you are away from it. Your home is where you feel safe and seek refuge – your safe haven.
It can be something as confining as a four-walled bedroom or an open space in a field. Even if you live on a remote farm where crickets chirp at night, or you live in a bustling metropolis that does not seem to sleep, you will equally feel at home if it is where your heart belongs. The size and scope of it carries no weight.
The Grass Is Always Greener On The Other Side
You often search for the perfect home elsewhere and forget the home that already exists. The grass is always greener on the other side. But once you reach there, you find it is far from what you expected. You think a lifestyle beyond your reach is better than your current way of life. And you center your days on achieving that life and end up not fully living at the moment.
So, broaden your perspective and value the present home you have. You may find that the more content you are, the cozier your home seems. An unhappy person will feel glum even if he lives in the biggest manor in the world. Remember that wealth does not have the power to convert a place into a home – only your heart is capable of that.
The Perfect Home
You might think there is no perfect home because you can’t seem to get a hold of it. But here is a thought for you – how can you find a place to stay if you keep walking? Little do you realize that your search for it is the reason you can’t find it. If you stop in your tracks and take in the things around you, you might finally find your home. It may not be perfect, but nothing really is perfect. The only thing that matters is that you will feel at home.
