Everyone has bad days and goes through troubled times. That’s just life. But it helps to have someplace to call home, a place where you can relax and just be. And some even have special places within that home to go to for some peace and quiet. Whether you’re a homebody or not, there is no place like home.

This photo was taken on our family trip back from Maine over 2 years ago. A week filled with peace, quiet and lots of relaxation. The beautiful views and breathtaking atmosphere was quite an inspiration for me. Especially since I adore nature. This photo reminds me of how much I love home and the pure essence of new beginnings. Even though our trip was over and we were sad to say good bye, we were excited to get back to our special space.

When I look at this image, it speaks to me in a language that is clear and simple. No matter what life brings your way, there will always be a road to lead you in the right direction. A safe pathway that will not only bring you home, but teach you lessons along the way. To think of this road as an ending is missing the beauty of starting fresh. Returning to your special place only enables new paths to appear. With a clear head and the will to move forward, life is waiting outside your door.

And no worries about the things we cannot control. Life will continue to test our abilities and patience. Just remember to keep your eyes open and find that path that awaits your travels. For it will take your hand and bring you to where you belong, home sweet home.
