A Recipe for Comfort

A Recipe for Comfort:

  • 3 Good Friends
  • 1 bowl of macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes or meatloaf
  • A pinch of a sunny day
  • 7 hours of a good show on Netflix
  • 2 hours of a massage
  • A dash of relief

 

Comfort is the ultimate recipe. It is about providing someone with something to make them feel better. Comfort is being a good friend and giving someone the time of day. Believing in what comes around comes around means that if you provide someone with comfort, something will come to you. To be comforted means that someone cares about you, and to comfort someone means that you have a heart enough to take someone under your wing and make sure that they will be okay. Comfort is a combination of many things; atmosphere, food, the people around you, and what is currently sitting in front of you. Many people look for comfort when things go wrong, and they hope for people to surround them when the going gets rough.

Changing Comfort

Right now, we’re all just enjoying our last few months left of mandatory public education, before we are thrown into the big abyss known as “college”. Many of us are used to being away from home, on trips or just being with friends all the time. Others have never spent a day outside of New England, and are dreading it. The days of living on our own and becoming adults are closer than they appear. In mere months, we will be taking our first college finals, going to parties and breaking through our shell. Most of the people we have surrounded ourselves with for the past four years will only be memories and we will see most of these people in 10 years at the reunion. What is comfortable to us now, will not be the same comfort that we will have in a year’s time. We will divulge our secrets to our roommates, instead of the girl that you gossiped with in study hall. We will learn new room numbers of classrooms, and your best friend’s address will soon be the room down the hall, instead of the one down the block. These changes are coming faster than they appear, and you really start to learn that time flies, and it goes faster and faster every year. There is nothing that can slow it down, but the best thing to do is slow down and enjoy the changes in comfort, and embrace it in every way.
