Home is a place in your heart. Feeling homesick is really a longing to be authentic or return to a place that is familiar. Sometimes familiarity and authenticity are at odds with one another and we develop a deep longing for home. Taking time to discover our authentic joys and sorrows, pleasures and pains, serenity and chaos is well worth the journey. It is only in finding our true selves that we will be home at last. Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz had it correct … There is no place like home!
