I’m sitting in the business center of my apartment complex right now. I packed up my desk from my home and carried it all with me. I could kill for a cup of coffee and a pair of socks– since its freezing in here.
So, why am I here? I have fuzzy socks and free coffee in my little corner of the world in just a few steps out this door.
Because in order to really focus on the work ahead of me, I need a change of scenery. There’s no place like home, but with everyday life taking place there, it can be hard to block everything out to deliver the best you can to your work.
Right now, my roommates and I are in the process of moving. There’s boxes and crap everywhere! I can’t concentrate with all that chaos.
So do yourself a favor. If you’re having trouble on focusing, change it up a bit. Go to the library (yes they still have those!),work outside now that Spring’s here. You’ll accomplish so much more 🙂
Have you ever had a book change you?
I mean really change the way you think about things? Life? People?
That’s what Bright Side by Kim Holden did for me. It’s an amazing story about a girl named Kate who looks at life in a way we all should. She’s been put through the ringer and it never stops her from living in the moment.
I’m the type of person who tries hard to look at the positive side of everything. I love to laugh, joke and make others feel my happiness. I suffer from depression and so, it can be a bit challenging.
With that being said, Kate’s character really shined to me. She’s not the bubbly, take shit from others happy. She’s the real deal- down to Earth, positive and spunky. I love her!
And don’t get me started on everyone else in the book. Gus, Keller, Clayton, Gracie…. an amazing supporting cast to tie the story all together.
