Address…

Being really honest, since I understood myself as a human being, I always would like to travel, to have a job that lets me go around the world. My dream was always to fly! I never cared about to having a stable place, an address, a house, for myself; if I could live each time in a different place, this would be the perfection.

However, after some long trips I start to realize the amazing sensation of rest in a known bed, shower in a known bathroom and use a known toilet… actually a piece of land has its value, and looks like it is pretty valuable!!

Palestine and Israel are fighting for years because of a piece of land. In the last few years, thousands of people are leaving their land because it is not peaceful anymore. They have to forget their old addresses, seeking a new one… In another side, countries are closing their borders to protect their “land” all because of a piece of land that you can call yours. However, as human being, what really matters is that the Earth is our land; we cannot go to other planet… At least, not yet… then it does not matter if we live in the North, South, East or West… What matters is that this is our world and we are all neighbors!!.

For sure everybody wants to feel belonging to something; many times I was in places that I asked myself for thousand times “what am I doing here?, I don’t fit with these people, this place , culture or weather…” But in the end… what it really matters?

What matters is that you start to give more value for places that you passed by, for people whom you cannot see frequently anymore, for the food and bed that you have now, for the opportunity of knowing new people, discovering new things and for having lived what is past.

What I know is that even if you don’t find an address to call “home” now, there is this big Guy, who is coming back to give an address to each one who accepts Him, a place that we will all call home, not only because of the geographical location, but for the finally feeling of belonging.
