I have LIVED in London for most of my life, except for 18 months of my life and for years now it hasn’t been my home. It has been where I live. I have to be here for school and I have to be here for now, but when it came to the place that I called home, it would be where my heart would live.
Home is where your heart is and that is why you hear that a lot. I know people that have lived in Brazil, Australia and America, but still come back to London. It is about finding that place where you feel in place and where you feel like you can call it home. It is a place where the thought of going there makes you smile and giddy and gives you that sense of home.
I do feel loved in where I live now. I live with my parents for now for school, but it’s not home. I’ve lost many people that I love while living in London and although a lot of my history is wrapped up in this city, I want a fresh start and a lot of people want that too.
To be honest and I would suggest this to anyone, go out to places that you love, that keep being on your mind and that you love to learn about. See if you love that place, she if you can see a future in this place and that it’s more than just a fascination with a holiday destination. If you find the place that you know you love, that you want to call home then do everything and anything in your power to get to it.
Don’t just think that you can’t do it because you can do anything if you set your mind to it. Don’t moan about how things aren’t changing and that your dreams aren’t being done, do something about it. Like the old saying, if you don’t like it, change it.
Finding home is something that everything should be done. Don’t settle with the feeling that you should stay around. Find where you belong because if you don’t, you’ll always have those what ifs and you’ll wonder if that place was really home to you.
Just because you live somewhere, does not make it your home. It just makes it your house or current living situation, but when you know you belong somewhere and your heart is in the right place, happy, then you know that this is your home. That is where you belong and yes, you may have family in other another town or city or country, but they should want you to be happy and being somewhere that isn’t home won’t make you happy. Be happy and be yourself.
Follow your dreams. Find your HOME with your HEART not your HEAD.
