There’s something very profound about this week’s Five Minute Friday, in that I think it speaks well to something that each and every one of us are searching for. We’re looking for someplace to call home, someplace to find belonging, and someplace to land. In each of us there swells up this longing, and in one form or another we use our time and energy to attain this goal.
For many, it is faith, for others, activism. For some it’s family, others might be their work families. Some feel like they belong alone, and have decided to settle there, and some within this category do it in an unhealthy fashion and need help moving from this place to a safer, more healthy place.
It’s the reason why we’re so devestated when our homes are taken away from us. It was our place, our escape, our place of belonging. Whether the place is taken from us by natural disaster, family separations, flames, job displacement, or any other number of things, it is always the thing that we hold onto for as long as we can!
With it being Friday, most people are going home, or to their places where they feel like they belong, and I hope that everybody this weekend finds their way there safely. Not everybody will be as lucky, which is unfortunate. Travel safely, and enjoy the place that you belong in this weekend.
