Home on the Horizon

The past few weeks I’ve felt “off.” I had no other explanation when asked what’s wrong by friends, co-workers, and my family other than “I just feel off.” Last week I came across an anonymous quote that perfectly sums up my emotions that I couldn’t put into words.

“I don’t know where i’m going, but i’m on my way there.”

It hit me like a sack of bricks–I am homesick. So completely homesick…Homesick for my family, homesick for a sense of belonging, homesick for my future life where I can settle down and grow roots.

I have spent the past year working all across the country in several states.  This year of travel and adventure has been an absolute blast of a year that I will cherish forever… but I can’t push away the longing I have to be settled, to finally be home again.

I’m missing a place I’ve yet to find with a man I’ve yet to meet.

But I have faith that good things are coming; home is on the horizon.  I can’t wait to run through the doors and wrap up my family in my arms, to finally feel like I belong again, to grow roots, and to once again be

home, sweet home.
