I have been here for years, but don't go back to the family home as often as I should. I sometimes feel that I should stay away so I get used to not being there too often when I finally make a move to another city. I know that's weird, but I think that is my subconscious reason for not going there a lot.
For me, home is wherever I am. Home is wherever I am living. I just moved less than a month ago, but this new apartment already feels like home. I already recognize neighbors walking down the street, already miss the sound of the children in the back these last few days when the weather has been too hot for them to play outside.
Home is wherever I want it to be - wherever I am.
I am learning that more and more the more I move from apartment to house to apartment.
Which brings me more to the realization that I can be anywhere and call it my home.
All things happen for a reason, some say, and maybe these moves and this prompt are to show me that I can live anywhere, that I am ready for the next location.
