Home for me is a memorized address, dorm room, apartment, premises with floor type identified by my feet, brand loyalties, local radio stations, siblings, and more.
Most young adults leave the physical premises of home. The memories and mementos of home accompany us to new dwellings, spaces, and addresses called home. Thus possessions come with us on the journey. They can be things like brand loyalties, day planners, CD or DVD collections, inner desires for peace and quiet, or some party atmosphere that contributes to our personality.
I am sharing some of my journey, based on my recollection of things that have accompanied me as I have created numerous new homes over this lifetime. I believe home includes our heritage, roots, and evolving faith practices.
We live in a society noted for mobility and change. Our current routines may be temporary but lead to new adventures and people who come onto the stage of our journey. My advice is: Pray to God for strength, welcome new acquaintances, and be flexible. While trust is not a blank check and must be earned, start small and go from there.
