One afternoon when I was driving home from a workshop at Inter Valley Health Plan I heard the most beautiful song on the radio by Christina Perri.  It was called Arms.

Here are the lyrics:

I never thought that you would be the one to hold my heart
But you came around and you knocked me off the ground from the start

You put your arms around me
And I believe that it’s easier for you to let me go
You put your arms around me and I’m home

How many times will you let me change my mind and turn around
I can’t decide if I’ll let you save my life or if I’ll drown

I hope that you see right through my walls
I hope that you catch me, ’cause I’m already falling
I’ll never let a love get so close
You put your arms around me and I’m home

The world is coming down on me and I can’t find a reason to be loved
I never wanna leave you but I can’t make you bleed if I’m alone

You put your arms around me
And I believe that it’s easier for you to let me go

I hope that you see right through my walls
I hope that you catch me, ’cause I’m already falling
I’ll never let a love get so close
You put your arms around me and I’m home

I tried my best to never let you in to see the truth
And I’ve never opened up
I’ve never truly loved ‘Till you put your arms around me
And I believe that it’s easier for you to let me go

I hope that you see right through my walls
I hope that you catch me, ’cause I’m already falling
I’ll never let a love get so close
You put your arms around me and I’m home

You put your arms around me and I’m home

I love these lyrics because it made me think about when do I feel “home”.  In my workshop a few Saturdays ago,  I talked about the “masks” we wear,  who do we let into our “home” space?  Which of your friends do you feel the most at home with?  Where are the walls that you may have put up, can you see them?  Who holds your heart?  Spend some time journaling about this topic.  Explore and write your feelings.
