There are too many quotes that I love, which almost always depend on the situation, on my situation. And I am sharing with you two quotes that I like, love and live by… current situation notwithstanding.
You can find it on top of my blog. That is to remind me every time that home is where I am.
I had this notion of home as being a place where to go back to, see familiar faces and remember old times. Well, yes it is true. For some. For most.
Having lived in different places, I am sometimes confused where home is. Is it where I was born? The place of my childhood? My teenage years? Or was it the place I return to at the end of a work day?
Home right now points to my hometown, where I grew up. It is a place to go back to, see familiar faces and walk down memory lane. But sometimes I find it lacking - merely because we do not have a house to return to… just like in the movies, where you go back to this old house, wooden and painted white, maybe with your grandma sitting on a rocking chair sleeping away afternoon. Then because I only spent a few years there - never had this odd teenage bond with the children I grew up with I sometimes felt left out. But it is home nevertheless.
The quote reminds me of the home in my heart. That whatever I do, the choices I make, the challenges I undertake… the journey that is life, is my home. However I make it = fun, bore, exciting, miserable, happy or ugly… depends on me. The sunshine I let in, the comforts I make, the wonders I enjoy is the home that I live. It is life's journey that define my home. The home that my son will look back to.
Hmn… I think I got a little too emotional on my first quote, let's move on.
Here's my second quote, to which all I can say is indeed!
