Today, Just Live

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist.” – Oscar Wilde

With everything that’s going on in the world now, most people are doing their best to survive, to somehow make it through the COVID-19 global pandemic while also helping others they care about (and even strangers) do so as well. Indeed, there’s a great deal of awakening that’s happening. And that’s a good thing.

But what about living? Are we merely going through the motions, so caught up coping with fear, frantically trying to ensure we have enough to eat, that we will not go through our savings while our jobs are on hold, wondering when and if life will ever return to normal?

If we’re fortunate to either not contract coronavirus or to have had it and recovered, no doubt we are thankful to our Higher Power for this precious gift. If we, or someone we know or care about, has suffered greatly from the virus, or if we’ve lost family, loved ones or friends to it, we are likely battling mixed emotions on a whirlwind basis. There’s guilt, relief, sadness, pain, and also fond or bittersweet memories to contend with.  We may be exhausted, overwhelmed, yet also filled with gratitude and generosity, finding purpose in living that may have eluded us for some time.

This is not about existing, not at all. It’s more about experiencing what it is to live. Existence is what historians write about. Living is what we do every day. Let’s make the choice to live life to the fullest, today and every day.

Start with the pledge to today, just live.

God bless!

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
  • Change your life outlook from pessimism to optimism
  • Be inspired through Daily Thoughts, a daily blog with uplifting messages that help lift your spirits and challenge you to do more

I know you want more out of life. Everyone does. The beginning of your path to success, the start of living a life that’s vibrant and full of purpose, begins today.

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.
