“You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.”
― Miriam Adeney
I read this quote a couple of nights ago and it stuck with me; it made me think about how much my life has changed from knowing and loving people in more than one place.
I have been blessed to know people from different places, not only know them, but love them. To love someone, for me, doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m still in touch with that person, it means that they’ve opened my mind and eyes to something different: a different culture, a different language…just something different that has seduced me to a point that made me love them. I often think this is a blessing denied to many, even though it has nothing to do with whether you travel or not, it has to do with you, with how much you are willing to step out of your comfort zone and see beyond your eyes, it is not always easy but it’s most certainly worth it. I challenge you to try it!
It’s nice to have parts of my heart in different places; it makes me different, which is what started it all.
