Home Away From Home

Home can be more than just a place; sometimes home is people and a sense of comfort. We need to be able to recognize home when we find it. Home is the place we can go to recharge, the place we can go to feel safe and the place we can go when we need to be accepted. We have to find these places in our lives. They give us a chance to relax, to let the walls down. When we have a chance to renew our willpower we get a chance to regroup before stepping back into the hectic swirl of life.

These homes need to be more accessible then just the place we live. They can be a café, a group of people, or a gym. Starting our day rested is not enough. We have to be able to step into these homes away from home throughout our day. The revitalizing of will power and the injection of mental energy from just a few minutes at the coffee shop is amazing.

Life can easily overwhelm us and we all need safe places to retreat to when this happens. This does not mean retreating from the world or from the battle but more it means taking shelter behind the rubble that is strewn about us. These homes, these fox holes, give us a moment to reload, to know that others have our backs, and to devise a plan of action.

Find your home. Find your foxhole. Use them when you need them to help you be happy, strong and victorious.
