.countdown to midsummer and sweden is calling.
” A home is a dwelling-place used as a permanent or semi-permanent residence for an individual, family, household or several families in a tribe. It is often a house, apartment, or other building, or alternatively a mobile home, houseboat, yurt or any other portable shelter. Homes typically provide areas and facilities for sleeping, preparing food, eating and hygiene. Larger groups may live in a nursing home, children’s home, convent or any similar institution. ”
This is what Wikipedia says about “Home”. Unfortunately a lot of people don’t have a home, or they don’t feel safe in their own home. The United Nations Commission on Human Rights estimates that the world has 100 million homeless people… living a whole life, always having a home, is nothing that is for granted. And every now and then I think we should all stop our Instagram, Twitter, Facebook & blog posting and think about how lucky you are that you were born into the “right” circumstances – which also gives you a bigger chance to a greater life. It doesn’t mean that you WILL have a better or worse life depending on where in the world you were born. But the chances increase depending on the environmental conditions. And in the end it’s all up to us. But from the very beginning, as that newborn baby coming screaming into the world – it’s all about luck … or no luck.
I was lucky. And if you read this you were probably lucky as well. I’m grateful. I try my best to help other people. I try to donate money. I try to not forget “having a life like this is not for granted.”We all have problems, issues, we all go through crises. But I always cary something with me that my mum told me;
.it could always be worse.
Today is the first day of my vacation. For 9 whole months I didn’t see Sweden. My 2 year old niece and 8 year old nephew. In April I came home for some days. But it was way to short. Now I can barely wait and I’m in the middle of packing.
I will continue. I wish all of you a lovely sunday.
