Tuesday thoughts: rebuilding shelf by shelf
The last two months have been a roller coaster of emotions and change in my life – some good and some bad.
The death of my mum, a massive career changing decision, allowing our young children to travel overseas without us and general end-of-year burnout seemed more than I could handle at times. I was a ball of nerves and emotions.
New space, new me, new goals
But working on my new office space has been a therapeutic act of re-centring, reflection and rebuilding. As we purged the trash, pulled up stained carpets so too did I begin to purge my mind of negative thoughts.
As I placed each of my precious books on my new bookshelves a bit of the self-doubt and anxiety began to dissipate. Books are like little miracles that light up my soul.
Here is a sneak peak my new me space. There is still a lot more to do – turns out I don’t have enough shelf space for all of my books! But this holiday I plan on doing a little every day so that come January 12, when the next chapter of my new life begins, my space will be ready and perfect.
Watch this space for a few more snapshots of my work in progress.
