I am aware of this ache in me today.
I used to believe that ‘home’ was only a physical place. And while creating a nurturing place, a sanctuary for my son and I, brings me a deep stability and satisfaction, I have slowly learnt that the place I was always looking to create outside of me is actually inside of me. This is the safest place I can go when I am able to be kind and loving to myself. The ache comes because I am still learning to turn inward and to be kind and loving to myself. To create a safe place within me where I can go to rest and be soothed. May we all find that place within us today.
