Take a moment to reflect upon walking up to your front door. In your imagination notice the environment on the walk up to your front door. As you turn the key and begin to enter notice any shifts inside. What feelings arise? Do you go from a sense of being rushed into a quieting state of peace, relaxation and groundedness? If not, why not? What is happening in your home that is not supporting you in this way?
Now imagine not having a home. What feelings come up? Do you take your home for granted? Do you have a love/hate relationships with your home?
Consider all the above and the consequences of how this may affect your health and well-being.

A learning feature humans are born with is the power of observation and comparison. When baby watches mom and dad move and listens to them speak, baby then begins to duplicate what they are observing and hearing. This is the stage before ego development. Parents model what baby learns. Ego driven comparison judgments are learned from mom and dad’s culture and begins as baby starts understanding sentences. Once a day stop and notice your self comparisons this week.
