In a different place

On Thursday morning I woke up early even for me. My head was full of very clear images of the different desks and offices I’d worked in. When my desk faced the window and I was next to my best friend, when the desks changed direction and the office was extended, when we moved offices and started ‘hotdesking’ (but inevitably went back to the same place)… Each change had unsettled me for a few weeks. Each change had made me unhappy until I got used to it.

I didn’t notice it at first, but when I got home from the school run, something was different. My head was in a different place.

I’d moved on.

For weeks I’d been putting off making a start on my new business, telling myself I was ‘too busy’. I wanted to give myself a week off, then it’s the Easter holidays and I’d inevitably have another couple of weeks off and, to be honest, I was slightly concerned that I would never find the motivation to get started.

But while I was out running, the words for my new website just came into my head. I had other stuff to do, but I knew getting those words down was a priority.

I made a list of the things I wanted to read and the things I needed to learn for my business.

I felt different in myself. Lighter, happier, less stressed.

Being at work and knowing I had to leave had been holding me back.

I’m in a different place now and I’m ready to move forward.

    I think you’re right, Tracey! Running is always good for clearing the mind, Sarah, and I’ll do more now I’m not going to work!
