Why I’m Not Going Home Yet


  1. Ayngelina says:

    You are doing the right thing. I would definitely urge you not to go home until you really want to, it’s the only way to avoid regret. I traveled for 18 months and when I went home I knew it was time and I don’t regret it at all.

      Thank you — I’ve heard that from a few people now in the past couple weeks. I think that when the time comes, and I know it will, I’ll feel it and just be ready!

  2. Home is where your heart is. don’t forget that. you can go “home” or where your came from but your heart might not be there. or you can stay where you are and you might find your heart is somewhere else. as long as your heart is content and you are exploring and experiencing the divine stay and be contented in this moment.

    I hear ya… I just can’t picture that moment when going home seems like the right thing… I imagine it hits eventually though. I’m TEFL’ing in China for now, and “the road” has felt more like home than anywhere else. Awesome blog! I just discovered it.

  4. I have lived in east London for 6 years and I feel like I still notice and appreciate new things all the time. But it does tend to happen when I’m breaking my routine, meeting someone somewhere new, taking a different mode of transportation or otherwise pushing myself out of my comfort zone.

    I think you could live in London your whole life and still regularly discover new and exciting things 🙂
