Home is a feeling of comfort, rightness, and belonging. It’s a relationship that’s fulfilling, a job that you love, an activity that brings you joy, an environment that makes your heart sing.
Home is your purpose in life, your mission, your raison d’etre.
It’s not a place–it’s a feeling. There are many people who think they know where your home is. Parents, clergypeople, gurus, experts, and other authority figures are eager to tell you how to get there. But the truth is, you’re the only one who knows.
“But I don’t know,” you might say.
Actually, you do. All the information you need is inside you: your emotions will guide you home, and they’ll help you recognize it once you get there.
