It's all in the mindset of the moment

Get Comfortable

Comfortability is such a strange concept

Different for everyone

Yet certain things remain the same

The feeling of being comfortable

Though not the easiest to describe

Is similar throughout borders, languages, and faith

Whether it is being experienced in solitude or togetherness

Sometimes comes with clarity or knowledge


It's knowing that everything will be okay, even if things could be better

And it does get better


For me, cozy and comfortable go hand in hand

A cup of coffee, a book in hand, sitting on the couch covered in a blanket

Outside the rain is falling, and thunder sounds in the distance

By myself or surrounded by my family

Pure Hygge

Hygge, a word that the world has been familiarized with over the last couple of years

A term I often had to translate or explain to non-Scandinavians

The essence of the feeling, or the idea of the word


It's leaving the rest of the world to itself for a while or for the briefest of time

Just being in the moment
