What Is A Home To Me

What Is a Home? By Aarna Prajapati “Home isn’t a place, it is a feeling.”-Cecelia Ahern To me is where I feel safe, secure, loved and accepted. Home is a place you can feel comfortable cooking breakfast in your pajamas. It's a place where I don't have to define my strengths or explain my responses. Home is where I can be me 24/7, where I can be the champion or be insecure and still be cherished. Home to me is a place of refuge. Home is happy and full of laughter. Home is a place where the hugs abound and peace is found. Whether a home is small or big, it is where I feel safe. No matter where life takes us, many of us see home as the place where we are always wanted. It is where we can be true to ourselves and others. To me home is not a building made of bricks and wood, it is not where there is a cozy bed or massive expensive furniture. From time to time the looks of my home will change, but the memories will be cherished in various ways. And whether you have nourishments or not, with your love you will fill up everyone! So remember “Home isn’t a place, it is a feeling”.-Cecelia Ahern
