This week, Fandango provocatively asks us;
Are you one of the seven out of ten people who is unhappy with the place in which you currently reside? If so, what is it about your place that causes your unhappiness? Or, are you one of the 30% who is not unhappy with your home? What is it about it that makes you happy?
I think I fall in the group of people who like their home, city and country.
I am living in two places at this moment. One is where my husband is, Lahore and the other is where I live with my daughter and grandson, that’s Islamabad. I like both of these homes. Our home in Lahore is big and we need help with cooking and cleaning here. People are happy to work here for a salary.
While our home in Islamabad is small, cozy, and easily managed. Here I just need a part-time helper. The rest I manage on my own. It keeps me busy and active.
Both these places are comfortable and I have made them easy to manage, keep clean, and welcoming. Another important factor is that in both these homes, I have my own space where I can be alone, relax and do as I feel.
When your living space is comfortable and welcoming, and you feel as if you fit right in, you will feel happy living there.
