To some of you who travels often and contently away from home for a few weeks, months a year, will know exactly what this post is going to be about. This week is not going to be about the latest style, the best place to travel, or what the trending new toys are going to be. It is a much more personal story, a feeling that sometimes, are hard to understand until it occurs to you personally. Therefore, I would like to take this platform to share with you all.
Growing up is an unavoidable progression one must go through in life. Becoming independent, an adult, creating a life you call your own. Yet, stepping through this path of life, there are certain aspects of the past, I will have to leave behind. Not because you or I want to leave it, but are unaware of this happening since it was never an issue of it not part of your life during that moment. And that I am speaking of above am home. Home used here is very generic, as to me it symbolized family, friends, etc. and not just your house of residence.
Throughout the younger years of my life, like many others, I will be home and cared and loved for by my family, and friends. However, slowly, as I got older, I realized the time I spend at home, becomes less and less. The older I got, the further away, I have moved, and the distance to get home from walking distance to hours of flight time. Yes, I do get homesick when I leave, but realizing it is not the place, the area, the house, I missed, but the people, and the littlest things they do every day that I missed. Regretting taking everything my family and friends does for me, for granted, always thinking why didn’t I have more dinners at home, or do more to show my appreciation. Knowing that, every chance I got to be back home, no matter where that is, as long as the people I cherish are with me, I am going to make every moment with them a great memory. A memory that when we are apart, we all look back and yearn for the future, where we meet and can create more memories. Therefore, make memories, ones that you and your friends, family, think back and laugh. Never take that for granted and forget the importance of family and friends. Life is made of many moments and depending on you to create the most memorable ones that are worth keeping.
Have a dapper day everyone!
Passionate about life, and the beauty it offers.
