The literal meaning of the Swedish word smultronställe is “wild strawberry patch.” Metaphorically, it refers to a special place that feels like your private sanctuary. It may be hard to find or unappreciated by others, but for you it’s a spot that inspires you to relax deeply. You may have had a life-changing epiphany there. When you’re there, you have a taste of what it’s like to feel at home in the world. Do you have a smultronställe? If not, time to find one. If you do, spend more time there next week.
