At home

Home is not so much a place as it is an attitude. You can learn to be at home wherever you may be. Home, at its best, is comfortable and reassuring. The more places in which you’re able to be comfortable and assured, the more effective you will be.

Rather than being afraid to venture away from home, expand your concept of home. Get comfortable in the space outside your comfort zone, and then get comfortable even outside of that.

Wherever you may find yourself, wherever you may need to go, find a way to be at home there. Find the horizon beyond the horizon, and make your home there, too.

Seek, with enthusiasm and positive expectations, the challenges beyond what you’ve known. And you’ll find treasures beyond what you’ve ever imagined.

— Ralph Marston
