Even when we’re very young we realize that our home is not just any house. That’s because our home gives us a sense of belonging and a house is just a building with the potential of giving someone such a feeling.

Fancy or modest, your home is a place where you feel safe and cozy. A place where you can forget about your daily problems – a quiet oasis where you can recharge your batteries. And more importantly, your home is where your dearest ones await for you.

It’s only through peace and love that you can truly feel at home. Some are lucky enough to have always had a proper household, and some have to create one themselves. If you’d rather be at work or anywhere else, maybe your house is not a home. Don’t be afraid to move out and find or build your sanctuary.

Never stop seeking for that place that will provide security and comfort; where you can be yourself and create happy memories. And if you’ve already found it, cherish it!
