Home Is Your Safe Place

“The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.” – Maya Angelou


What makes home your safe place? Is it a feeling of comfort that nothing can destroy? Is it knowing that this is the place where you can be yourself at all times without fear of criticism or envy? Could the fact that nothing has changed there for most of your life be a factor? Do your emotional ties to home be the overriding consideration?

In reality, home is all these things and more. It’s also true that home needs to be a safe place in order to really be a home. Otherwise, it’s just a house, an abode, resting place or an in-between stop.

When you come home you feel like you can shed the troubles and pressures of the day. Whatever happened on the commute, that worrisome project you couldn’t finish on time, the string of complaint calls you took – all that can fade away as you walk through the door to your sanctuary, your home. No one can invade your safe space. This is your carefully nurtured and maintained castle where you can live as you please.

At least, that’s what home should be. For many, however, home is much different. Instead of embracing it as their safe place and doing everything possible to nourish and protect it, they allow daily stresses and worries to follow them across the threshold. Now, instead of feeling free to go as they are and not be questioned, they feel the weight of those troubles on their shoulders, questioning themselves in the process and never feeling the healing balm of their sacred, safe space.

Make home your safe place as it truly deserves to be. Lay aside the daily grind and welcome the opportunity to return to this familiar and embracing place. It’s safe here. It’s where you belong. No matter where you travel or how far away you are, home always beckons. It’s the safe place you know you can always come back to, to refresh, replenish, revitalize and renew.

Helping You Find Your Hope

“The key to finding happiness is to engage in positive thinking about life and the challenges it throws at us.” – Suzanne Kane

I’m Suzanne Kane. Through my personal experiences, I’ve learned that life can be vibrant and full of purpose. Yet so many people struggle to find their niche, to experience the success and happiness they desire.

I know that the key to finding happiness is to actively engage in positive thinking about life and the challenges it throws at us.

But that’s not all there is to it. Through my blog and Daily Thoughts, I’ll help you navigate life’s curves and find the path to achieving the success you desire.

You’re Right to Want More

Are you looking for direction in your life? Maybe you feel like your personal growth has hit a standstill? You aren’t alone. There are millions of people out there just like you that feel lost and don’t know what to do about it. As a writer who experienced this firsthand, I created this website to share uplifting messages, positive inspirational quotes and self-help articles.

Here and in my daily blog you’ll find help to:

  • Contextualize events in everyday life in a way you can relate to
  • Realize the importance of setting goals and reaching for dreams
  • Learn how to break free from funk and start down a path to positive thinking
  • Shake off stagnation so you can begin to improve your life and find the happiness you once found so elusive

Check Out Daily Thoughts

One of my favorite activities is writing the Daily Thoughts. These all begin with positive inspirational quotes from people both famous and little-known. I then provide my perspective on the topic so that you can glean tidbits that resonate with you.

I like to make you smile. But, just like my goal with my daily blog, in Daily Thoughts I’ll also challenge you to engage in positive thinking, to push past preconceived notions of what you can do and what you’re afraid is beyond your ability.

If you miss a day and want to catch up, check out the archive of Daily Thoughts. There’s lots of good stuff. And the best part is I write daily positive quotes filled with uplifting messages and positive thinking.
