              www.homesickclothingco.com Let Go. Be Free. The idea of homesickness and finding the willingness to let go of the past consumed me. From this point on, I wanted to change. Instead of focusing on what I didn't have, I was inspired to discover joy within every day: family, art, culture, music, literature, nature, spirituality, love, and freedom. Homesick is a reminder that it's okay to not know where I'm going in life's journey. It's my hope for answers. It's my appreciation for where I've been and it gives me courage to keep moving forward. I think I’m finally on the right path to finding my special place. I hope someday soon you will be too, if you aren’t already.
