This week on the prompt, we’re talking our happy places. I had to think about this for a bit. A happy place could be a literal space or a state of being. I choose to go with the former. My happy place, unfortunately, is not yet in my and my husband’s aparment. It’s still got to be my room at the institution.
I have two happy spots in my room in particular. One is my desk, at which I write. I have quite the messy desk, with my computer space accumulating a lot of dirt from my computer being there all the time and my rarely cleaning the desk. I did just clean it last Wednesday, so hopefully it’s relatively dirt-free now.
My other happy place definitely has got to be my bed. I love covering myself in blankets, listening to an audio magazine while my AromaStream® essential oil diffuser on my nightstand dispenses a lovely vanilla scent. Of course, vanilla is not an essential oil. I got it in a set of scents from the local supermarket two years ago and am still looking for some other scents that are not the organic type of essential oil but can be diffused in an AromaStram® anyway.
In our apartment, I will of course eventually create my happy place too. When I leave the institution, I’ll be taking my AromaStram® and digital talking book player with me (obviously). I think now I’m going to place the essential oil diffuser on my desk in the living room, but am not 100% sure. I’m not yet sure where I’ll place my digital talking book player either, as it’s not too comfy having to sit in front of my desk while listening all the time.
I’m looking forward to my husband getting his stationary bike moved from his parents to our apartment, so that I can exercise without being disrupted (when my husband goes running himself, for example). I think it’s definitely possible to turn our apartment into a place that I’ll feel happy in too.
