Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.


About Real Home Sense


is considered the place where one lives permanently.

The location you return to every night after a day of work or play. It’s where you keep your stuff.

Most people consider home static, non-moving; like an apartment, a house, or even a double-wide in a fixed location.

But more people are discovering that this definition of home doesn’t have to be true. The concept of home can live in your heart and if you learn how to SENSE it, home can be where ever you choose it to be. An RV, a hotel, an Air BnB, or a series of couches. Travel a city, a country, or the world, and still be home.

Home is a state of mind, where your basic needs are met and accompanied by  feelings of comfort.

Home is where your heart is – safe, healthy, and happy – but feeling alive and personal growth doesn’t usually happen here.

You need to step outside your door, and into a little discomfort, because that is where you’ll feel truly alive, and that is where the REAL adventure begins…

As I walked into the viewing room, I heard the wailing. His mother was hugging every person individually and each recipient would hold her upright as she was crushed by waves of grief. Along with her wailing, she would shake her head and mutter statements of disbelief and sadness. I'd never …

Ghosts of the Past

While standing in your present, you can't possibly know who will impact you in the future or whether you will have an effect on those who have just come into your life. Only when you look backwards can you see the strands that tie you together. In 1992, my husband and I built a house an hour and a half north of Toronto in Wasaga Beach. Work was scarce in that area, so I took a job for a few months as a service advisor at the local Toyota dealership in Barrie, Ontario. I became friends with …
