A home, or domicilium, is a place used as a legal or semi-official residence for an adult, a family or other group. It typically is a fully enclosed and fully secured area and is often accompanied by a private enclosure called a domiciliary enclosure. This is usually the most substantial and hardest part of the home. The term “domicilium” is Latin for “house of residence.” In most jurisdictions, it is also required that a person using a domicilium be eighteen years old and be of legal age.
Many people are under the impression that the term home means being a safe haven from all things that are bad in this world. This is not entirely accurate, but there is some truth to the idea that there can be a place of refuge, even a home. To most people the word home evokes images of family members gathered around the dinner table sharing good food, warm gifts and a warm, friendly presence. It may very well be these things, but if a person is truly seeking the welfare and well-being of the human population as a whole then they would be well advised to look into what is commonly known as a domicile.
A domicile is not a house, but rather a place that adults are allowed to live independently in the event that they have no other living arrangements. A domicile might be an apartment complex or an older people’s housing estate. It may be in a newer building that has seen better days, or it could simply be a converted warehouse or other structure that does not allow much privacy for those who are staying there. For many people who find themselves without a place to live, especially after a divorce, the act of living in a domicile brings back memories of happier times.
One common way that we can use our domicile to bring positive memories into our lives is through the act of decorating it. A home means different things to everyone. For some people it means a simple room with a bed, a television and a couch. For others it means an entire floor, a garden room or a small workshop. The act of decorating a home means bringing the comfort and joy of home into our lives. When we feel comfortable, happy and secure then that is when we are creating positive memories.
For children it is important to make sure that they feel safe, loved so that their memories of home will be as positive as possible. There are some things that parents can do that will actually enhance their children’s feelings of home. For instance, when the child goes to school, they need to feel comfortable being separated from their parents so that they can learn to trust someone new. Creating a safe, warm and welcoming environment for their second home is another great way to help them enjoy the memories of home.
Finally, when people become homeless, the world can turn on them and cause distress. People who are homeless tend to be forgotten and this can cause a variety of negative emotions. It can make them feel bad about themselves and this can cause them to start to feel like a failure. Making sure that you create positive memories and feelings for your second home is one way to ensure that you never feel like a failure.
