Over the last 14+ years, I have had a hodgepodge of jobs. Two of my favorites have been a homeschooling mother and balloon artist.
Have I always received payment for these jobs? Well, some of them were a decent wage, and others paid nothing in the way of dollars in the bank.
And, of course, it is easy for our personal worth to be mistakenly be wrapped up in that almighty paycheck.
One thing almost all of my jobs in this time span have had in common is that some (or all) of the work has happened within my home.
The Vision: Working from home will be a dream. I will wake up, drink my coffee and calmly complete my tasks as I look out my window where birds sing to me from the trees.
The Reality: With no outside boss, I enjoy not setting the alarm and wake up whenever my body feels like it. Already behind, things begin to happen to me during the day, and I go on react mode. Before I know it, it is lunch time; I’m still in my PJs; have barely eaten anything and haven’t accomplished much more than feeding my child and the cat and surfing the web.
I’ve learned it doesn’t have to be like this. I am in control of my time at home. I have the ability to bring peace to all activities in my home. If I can do it, so can you.
It is tough to do this alone. You are where you are for a reason. You can totally take charge and own your life proudly.
In this blog, I hope to share my random thoughts (maybe they’ll get organized down the road) about my time(s) at home, in an attempt to possibly help others discover their happiness at home.
We can do this. You can do this.
