Life is always running, whether you’re in a hurry or chilling, the world is ticking in the same pulse. But it’s weird how the older you get, the faster life feels like. It’s because we’re busy minding our own business more than when we were younger. The older we get, new experiences, new habits, new lifestyle comes to place. While I get busy, it means I get less time to make time with my family, especially my parents.
To some people having their own life and leaving home is such an excitement. To me it is, but it doesn’t make it easy for me every time I leave home. As a child I was fortunate enough to have such loving parents who let me do and be the person I want to be. Now that it’s actually ‘the time’ for me to be the person I want to be, it makes me miss a lot of what I left back at home. I don’t know if this is just me, but a lot of times I feel home sick, but I can’t come home! I have duties that I have to finish back at where my life is now directed to. I know my parents completely understand that I’m busy on my studies, but I don’t want to understand the fact that time is running and it will never stop! We are all growing, and some day hopefully I’ll raise a family of my own.
My parents have shown me the best example of being a parent, even though I’ve had my ups and downs with them, but that’s what’s important! I’ll never learn if I have never gone through the worst. Home is my safe haven. Home is where I can gather with my family and chill like we used to always do. I used to take it for granted when I was a child, and I feel so stupid for not cherishing more of those moments when I got them everyday. I have just realized all of this in this past year, I used to be a very ignorant child. But hey, better late than never!
I’m so proud of all our accomplishments in the family. Everyone has done their hard work and are getting to where we all have aimed. Today are my parents 25th Wedding Anniversary, and I couldn’t be more proud to be their daughter along with my brother. Home is always a place I want to be, home is my safe haven.
