Hygge – pronounced “Hoo-Ga” A Danish word that means cosines.
It is a feeling more than a word –
it is the ritual of enjoying life’s simple pleasures
and making the ordinary more meaningful,
beautiful and special.
I always knew there was a word describing the magic and the wonders felt from the simplest of things. If you can feel the simple joys, the moments money can’t buy, and the memories that are made during the times when we are stripped of all luxuries, you might as well consider yourself richer than many and say hello to your higher self.
This is the first time that I have heard this word, and I feel it’s meaning in every sense of this peaceful image. It was a stormy day and I found myself borderline with the storm clouds and the sun. To the left was a puffy clouded blue sky and sunshine, while to the left were storm clouds that engulfed the mountains and covered everything in mystery. I felt Hygge deep within while watching this beautiful balance of struggle as the snow was gently falling from the sky.
