Over the summer while I was unemployed I got into this really terrible habit of feeling sorry for myself and I didn’t want to leave the house. Ever. I also didn’t practice yoga for two straight weeks because I knew that once I got on my mat I’d be forced to mentally call myself out on my bullshit. I hid from the things that I loved most and I was 100% not myself. It was not my finest hour, to say the least.
I decided I needed something positive to focus my time and energy on and to take a break from full-time job searching, interviewing, etc. I wanted to get back to normal and I desperately needed a jolt of inspiration.
I am one of those people who cannot function unless I have an inviting, creative space to work. I imagine many of you are the same. A messy, chaotic workspace leads to messy, chaotic thinking and makes for an overall unproductive setting. Whether it’s at work or at home, you can and should design a sanctuary for yourself where you can thrive. The following products have made my desk at my 9-5 a clean, simple area where I can crank out some serious work - my home office is still under construction: an organized mess, as I like to call it :)
I hope they can help you do the same!
I just finished reading this absolutely amazing book called 20 Something, 20 Everything by Christine Hassler, and I wanted to share some of the profound statements she made in regard to the ‘twenty-something crisis’ that we tend to face as we adjust to adulthood. I highly encourage you to go out and buy this book, as it has so many exercises that help you find clarity around exactly what it is you want AND need, but it’s my hope that simply reading the following quotes will create a sense of ease and open up your minds as well. Enjoy!
Hurricane Matthew has come and gone, destroying so many homes, cities, and buildings in its path. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected. <3 Especially those in Haiti.
When I first heard that a hurricane was headed for my beloved Charleston, I brushed it off. We get hurricane or tropical storm warnings so frequently, and they almost always end up being a nonevent. I couldn’t believe the lines at the grocery store as I went to pick up our weekly items last Tuesday morning. Woah, these people are really serious about this, I thought. Maybe I should be, too?
