Your Place Should Be The Ultimate Comfort Zone

There's an old saying that the only two places you as a human being is going to have peace is the grave and your house. That speaks volumes because when you think about it, those are two places where you expect no drama to happen at all. Can you imagine coming home from a long day of work and melodrama only to come inside and realize that you've entered another room full of melodrama?

You know something isn't right when you are arrive in front of your place, stand up straight on the porch frozen as a statue for five to ten seconds. Then you take a deep breath before you even put the key into the lock. I don't know about you, but I refuse to let my place follow that daily schedule of mental stress.

Your house or apartment should be the ultimate comfort zone. It should be a place you look forward to when you've come from a busy day. After all, our apartment is when we put the guards down and let ourselves be vulnerable.

This is the time when you strip all your clothes off and walk around naked if you want to. You grab a beer from the refrigerator and let it satisfy your thirst while on your way to the couch to watch random stuff on Netflix. You might even get a hot bath ready while you're at it.

Still, this is the time of your day and/or night when you're supposed to be in peace. Your environment is drama free. You can actually relax before you have to step out the door tomorrow, and deal with the real world again.

So whatever you do, make sure your place is forever your comfort zone. If you have to feng shui the place from top to bottom, by all means do it. Just make the effort in putting the work in. If you want peace in your place, bust that fucking door down, and drag that drama outside by the wig and root canal.

I'll be damned before I walk in my own place, and I ain't got no peace in every room I walk in. We all have an atmosphere that shouldn't be altered by yesterday's melodrama.

Let's put comfort in that imperial suite of ours.
