The joy of living on your own, part 2

You can also create the only place in the world where everything conforms to your ideals – where all things are your deciding.

You can create the place where you do for yourself the things you usually do for other people. Cook yourself a nice meal, listen to stories about your day, watch a movie.

You can create the place where everything you do is right – everything you do is important, and proves you are a person of great esteem.

You can create the place where your emotions are renewed just by walking in the door. The ambience can be entirely under your control.

You can create the place where you get to think about and explore every idea you have ever had.

You can create the place where, no matter what happens in the outside world, you know you are safe when you come home.

You can create the place where you influence every aspect of the place. And you also acknowledge its influence on you.

Some of these will not strike you as important.
They are not for you.
Which one resonates?
Some of these will overwhelm you.
Forget them.
Which one inspires and energizes you?

Yeats

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
