The prompt for the week is:
Do you have a safe place?
- This can be somewhere that you gravitate to, to make decisions or reflect
- Somewhere you go to think
- Somewhere you go to take time out
- Somewhere you keep things you must not loose
- Do you have more than one safe place?
This topic made me stop and think - do I have one? I know growing up I didn't feel very safe and I was constantly going from one place to the next.However, since marrying, I think I do have a few safe places.
|Us in front of our house in 2012.|
The first one would probably be our home. Since I was born, I've never lived in a place more than 4 years in a row. However, since we married and bought our home, we've been here nearly 15 years and I think I'm starting to realize I don't have to worry about having to pack up all my belongings and moving them. I can put "roots" down and not have to worry about needing to pack up everything.
This is a video my husband took of the day we have bush fires close to us and he went to help.
Because of this, I always tell my IT classes, when we talk about internet drives, about how I had my paperwork together but was still worried about the actual documents because I hadn't scanned them in. However, now I have scanned them in and I don't have to worry about them because I can get to them anywhere if there is a fire and we loose the actual documents. That really sinks home as bush fires around us have been getting worse over the years.
I'd have to say, these are my top 2 safe places. Do you have one or more?
