home office - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Getting a reclaimed wood desk that spoke to my soul was a vital part of feeling good about my home office. It was instantly more "me" than any corporate setting had ever felt.
My home office is small yet neat. All I need is my desk, chair and window. I need the view and I can't imagine doing this kind of work without an ability to see nature and let my eyes stretch into the distance.
At first working from home was placing a small desk in my bedroom. It was the one place in the house the kids were already trained to knock before entering. It wasn't "their space" and so that helped. Once boundaries were established I moved to a different room. That awareness that my work matters and interruptions must be minimised was by then a well established part of their emotional world and the boundaries felt okay to them. The smallest steps for adults can be the biggest emotional hurdles for children and we need sensitivity to that. Feeling secure in your loving bonds is everything.
