A Home Is Not Just A House

By naijarian (F)October 07, 2016, 09:18:50 PM
A house and home might both be built with bricks, planks, concrete and what have you, it have been agreed to really hold nothing in common. A home is built not just with the length of its roof or how deep the foundation is or how well the concrete is mixed. It has a few special features that make us call where we live a home.

The special features that makes where you live more than a house are those things that are dear to you and your family. A home, unlike a house, is that place that love dwells among the inhabitants; be it a family or a group of friends. A home is a place of harmony where trusts are built and conflicts are handled without constraint. A home brings peace to the mind and contentment to the mind. A house on the other hand is just that pile of bricks and whatnots where you dwell.
 
A home might be built with roofing sheets and clay but it is that place where your love is. It might be built with thatches and logs but it is that place where your commitment lies. It is a place where your dreams are supported and encouraged. It has something in it that makes you fond of it even when you are not there. It pulls you to itself even when you do not want to. It has something over you that make you want it as a part of your life. There is always something about a home that calms the spirit, body and soul.

The home is a place where all tribulations seems minor. It is a place where you can find support without having to beg for it. A house has nothing to offer you aside a bed space and sofa in front of the television. A house is a place where everything goes. It might be worth millions of dollars in real estate but it is just a place that is filled with distrust and uncertainty, where everyone suspects everyone.

So, what you make of your home is up to you. The love and warmth you invest in it makes it suitable for you to live in it. When you have a settled home, you have a settled mind and secured life.

Living under one roof doesn't necessarily mean you have a home, I must say. It simply means you are off the street and have a place to lay your head at night and might as well be a guesthouse where everyone is welcome or where all kinds abide. A home that is devoid of love and trust is like a tree without water and thunder without lightening. It will have this void that grows bigger and bigger by the day till those involved becomes strangers to each other.
 
A house can become a home with love and warmth. It gradually becomes where you really want to be when you see yourselves as one big happy family. A home makes your living much more interesting. A happy home is one basic thing any human being can have to be a success.

How do we achieve the transitioning of a house yo bwcomig a home? Do we add more wallpapers? Do we put up pictures of generations of generations of our oldies? Or do we just fill it with personal items fromneach memeber?

No! it takes more.

Be committed to one another.
Love unconditionally and trust without judgement.
Give good counsel and chastise rightly.
Encourage progress.
Discourage laziness and underdevelopment.
Respect opinions when logical.
Discuss collectively on how to better the bond you share.

A house is a house for only as long as you let it, let love resonate through every crack and crevice. Bring warmth into every decor and artwork.

Make your home, be warm enough for others to bask in.

There is a great differences between Home and House. Some people are from home while others are from house. Even if you want to marry make sure that your spouse is from home not house. Because the end result of people from house is tragedy.

Nice piece.... I always believe in the concept or ideology that it is better you have a home than a house. Having a duplex does not guarantee success... But having individuals who stays in one room and who loves each other goes a long way in enriching life.

yes ooo!!! Even the 12m$1.5 acre mansion of one of the Kardashian girls does not make the family any less drama-free. While some families live is a studio apartment and strive together in love and harmony.

oh well, some.individuals that are brought up in a 'house' kind of environment trun out okay though, what Yoruba's call 'won tun ara won bi' translated 'they rebuilt themselves. Where we grow up in, however hostile, shouldn't determine how we turn out in life. A girl from a house of chaos can turn out okay if she dissociate herself from her background by keeping good company.

true it is all because many have the flock mentality. They are too scared to venture out of their comfort zone. Immediately they begin to sense a kind of comfortability in their present state, they stay put and end up in the same realm as their folks
