There are many benefits to working from home. Your commute is very short, you have a full kitchen for serving tea or baking scones. There are more sounds of birds in a residential area than an industrial area, and a home is more insulated than a concrete warehouse which is too hot in Summer or Freezing in Winter. The traffic of business solicitors who just walk into your front office to bombard you with their sales pitch diminish. At home I'm blessed with Rose bushes, Camellias, English daisies, Gardenias and fruit trees in the yard, contrasted to a black parking lot lined with low maintenance ground cover.
We've started moving our business out of our warehouse and into our home. It's been a lot of hard work cutting 12' shelving in half, moving boxes of cards, and packing up desks. Our feet and backs are sore, we're exhausted, but filled with a sense of joy. The benefits of simplifying and downsizing are revealed as clutter and unnecessary items are removed. I actually believe these benefits outweigh the loss of a large building space and wonder why I didn't make the move sooner. I may even get caught working in my PJ's, which reminds me of a funny story which I'll tell you next time.
My "Cottage Pot" Teacup card was inspired by my visit to the cottages at Loch Lamond, Scotland.
