A fair chunk of us in the 21st century live transient, nomadic lifestyles. The technological and digital revolution has enabled anyone to go anywhere and do virtually anything – nobody is restricted in what they can achieve anymore. However, because of the ease of leaving and reinventing ourselves, the traditional family unit is being destroyed, and fewer people are settling down. If you want to go against the grain, however, and you want to settle down and create a forever home, you’ve found the right page. Yes, here you will find all you need to know.
In this article, we are going to tell you exactly how you can settle down and create your, and your family’s forever home. A forever home, as is in the name, is a home that you stay in and do not leave – your safe space – your patch of land.
Here is how to create a forever home.
Buy, Buy, Buy
First and foremost, a forever home has to be something that you own. Due to the difficulty many young people experience when they attempt to buy houses nowadays [due to unstable housing markets], governments across the world have introduced help-to-buy schemes. These schemes, aimed at targeting renters and young people, will help you to buy your first home. Buying your home and land is one of the most important things that you can do should you want to create yours forever at home. Your forever home cannot be on somebody else’s land. It has to be somewhere where you have stability and comfort.
However, even if you own your own home, if you have no reason to settle, you likely will not. To settle, you need purpose and reason. The main reason that most people settle down is that they have families and careers. If you have neither of those things, you should go out in search of them. No matter how old you are or what your social standing is, you are attainable. You are the controller of your own path, so make whatever you want so. To settle, you need a reason to settle.
Once you have your home and your family, you want memories. To create a forever home, there must be priceless memories contained within the home’s walls that can never be forgotten or lost. To create a forever home, you must create a place that is abundant with the memories of times past. Every wall, corner, and crack has a story. Your home should become something that you cannot afford to lose – somewhere that contains your life. To create a forever home, you need to create memories within that home.
Additionally, you need to feel comfortable there. Comfort is not just comfortable with the surroundings or comfort in the area, but rather, comfort with the home itself. You need to decorate and personalize it, even down, according to the home-design specialists of Vision Bedding, to your duvet, bed sheets, and pillows. Yes, you must feel comfortable in every single aspect of your home. Your home should be to you somewhere that you feel comfortable and feel like you can escape from the world [which we will come to next]. Your home must be comfortable, otherwise, it will never be a true forever home to you – it will just be a stopover.
Yes, as mentioned in our last paragraph, your home must be an escape for you. When we say escape, we do not mean an escape from reality, but rather, a place of contemplation and meditation. Your home should be a place where you can, if only for a moment, forget what happens outside of its walls, and be in the moment – be in your home. Escape is something not easily found in our manic digital world, but it should be something you possess, it must be something that you possess at home.
What’s a forever home without pets? Pets are, undoubtedly, part of the memories that we make. As a child, my grandmother told me that the reason she would never move out of her home was because of all of the pets that had died there – she said that their spirits remained within, and if she were to leave, they would be lost forever. With a mindstate like that, how could one ever leave one’s home? Pets are a great way to form an attachment and a bond to a place, whether they be dogs, cats, or rabbits.
