When I was 9, I lost everything because of a sudden tornado.
My house collapsed and every tiny thing/ toy/ piece of clothes I had was spread all over the garden. I can picture the scene like it was yesterday. My school bag was on the floor, wide open and a firefighter who was rushing to secure the place walked on my colour pencils.
This cracking sounds still give me shivers and tears. During weeks after that event, I walked in my sleep to the point I had to be lockdown in my room. I wanted to escape from the room with my teddy bear and one book. It let me afraid, broken, and profoundly wounded.
As I grew up, I instinctively turned every place I rent or own as a real life comfort zone with super private places where I recharge alone for hours.
When Hygge popped as a full way of life, I saw it as THE concept I was looking for to encapsulate what I was naturally doing for 25+ years.
