Going Home

Train station

There comes a time after each holiday when we have to return home. It's an inevitable ending to a holiday in fact. If we didn't have to go home it wouldn't be a holiday. Preparing for the return home after an enjoyable holiday takes some effort.

The idea of a holiday is to give us a break from our usual routine, the chores and tasks that fill our lives. To see new things, experience things, see sights we don't usually see. That's what makes holidays so important and such fun.

There's something pleasant about going home too. There are ways of doing things that are comfortable, known, safe. We have aspects of our daily lives that we enjoy. Having a break away can help us appreciate those, whether it's things or people. There's a comfort in our daily routines too.

Being away can help us notice things about our life at home that are missing or could be better. We can use the travelling home time and space to reflect on that, to plan what we might keep the same and what we might change. Following through with the plans when we arrive home and settle back into our regular routines can be a challenge.

The travelling time can serve as a great reflective time. Not away and not home, but somewhere in between, this time can unsettle us enough to think about things in new ways. To consolidate the experiences and learnings from our holiday.
