When we think about coming home we don’t often think about ourselves. We typically think about our family and friends.

We think about the time we were away and that its time to be with them.

There is some truth to that, but what most of us don’t realize that coming home also means taking off the uniform.

And when we take off the uniform we go from Superman to Clark Kent.

We don’t know who we are without it.

Why is this important you might be thinking?

If we don’t know who we are, what we value, where we want to go, we won’t have the anchor points in our life that keeps us grounded in one particular area.

We are going to move from job to job, from thought to thought, and choice to choice.

Our identity after we serve will be the lighthouse on the seas of life that will keep us coming back home on the days we get lost at sea.

You see when we don’t have our identity you might as well be a ship without a sail.

It starts with knowing your core values

It continues by knowing where you want to be in the future

It comes to true when your values and vision for your life start to help you take actions, and make choices that close the gap between the dad you are today and the day you are in the future.
