My safe place & my own little haven.
For me, my bed and my room in our flat is my own little haven. It's my safe place. It's the place where I'm able to shut myself away from the rest of the world if I need to. It's the place where I can snuggle under the duvet to the sound of the rain drops on my window and just be me. It's the place where I can think. It's the place where I can have peace when the city is just a little busy. It's the place where I can kick my shoes off at the end of a busy day and sigh with relief as I fall into my (probably too many) pillows.
I'm a firm believer that the space around you can affect your productivity and your mood, and so I like to invest in the spaces that I spend a lot of time in. If I had a spare room for an office, you can guarantee it would be decorated and accessorised with the most positive of quotes and cute little prints. There would be a beautiful clock on the wall with the most inspirational of books on the book shelf. There'd be sweet scented candles and house plants on the window sill. This too, would be my space.
My safe place is where I like to wake up on a Sunday morning, lie under the duvet and watch the early risers get out and about in the city. It's where I'll grudgingly climb out of to pop the kettle on, and then climb straight back in amongst blankets with a fresh cup of coffee and my favourite book or my laptop.
It's my own little haven.
