Where is home for you? If I had to pin a physical location, I would consider Southern California my home. Though I only lived there for four years in college, they were the best years of my life. I felt truly at home. For some, home isn’t defined by where you grow up, how long you’ve lived in a particular place, or where your parents chose to settle down. Rather, it’s measured in the love and safety to nurture your authentic self. For me, home is not held in a physical space, but within the circles of people I hold close to me. Home truly is where the heart is and unexpectedly, I left a piece of my heart in Thailand this summer.
