Today I am thankful for my home office.
It’s my space to decorate and work in. The rest of the house is shared with the family and this space is MINE. While I’m quite extroverted, I covet the ability to retreat into an area I control and exert my own personality and tastes. I have quirky work habits (I will just assume I do even though I’m not quite sure what they would be) and the idea of being in an open work space or shared office is stressful to me. I’ve been in both – and still have to share an office “at work” with my husband. The knowledge that I do in fact have my own space to retreat to is reassuring. Creatively I need to be around people in order to think up my best work and solutions but when I’m executing on them – LEAVE ME BE IN MY OWN OFFICE!!
