Le Tryu: The Perspective Of How Life Changes

681 words - 3 pages

While I was growing up, I had become acclimated to moving around. I constantly moved in and out of houses, sometimes to a new city while other times to a completely different country. When I was a year old, I had departed from Miami en route to Barranquilla, Colombia where I spent four years with my grandfather.

Relocating ultimately taught me two particularly noteworthy lessons that have stuck with me ever since. I initially realized that a home is neither a physical plane nor a concrete building, but instead a warm sentiment of security you draw from your family. Thus, I swiftly realized that I never forfeited my home; rather, whenever I moved away, my home came with me, as it always will. My home is a conceptual part of myself that I will always take with me wherever I may go.
