I have been lucky to have a variety of wonderful jobs in my life. Met great people, learned about the world and myself, and contributed to my community. I’ve also had jobs that have sucked.
It makes sense that while working the crappy jobs I would often be thinking of other things…my days off, the evening plans, even the chores I had to do. Things from my personal life.
It also makes sense that during the “good” jobs I was more mentally involved, but once I left work that was it. I left work at work. There’s nothing wrong with that and it can often provide balance. But I have always had a hard time getting back into work after time at home. Dread. I’m talking about dread. Nobody likes to dread going to work.
But this great little shop that I started? It’s different. Not only do I lose myself in the Barn while I’m there, I also look forward to working. So much so that I find myself thinking of my projects while I’m going about my home life. It is a relief. To be doing something that I love. That I hope makes a difference in my community. That is important to my family and to me. Thank you all for being a part of that.
