Okay, so this is my desk. It’s cheap and comes from Amazon. Above it has art work from my three boys. There are sticky notes for bill reminders and summer schedules. It’s my office. I’m at work from the time my kids crawl over the baby gate at 5:50am until they pass out randomly somewhere between 7pm and 9pm. This is not including the umpteen times one or the other wakes up in the middle of the night. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that I am pretty much at my job all the time. My desk is somewhere I can SOMETIMES sit for a second and breathe. I can do research or I can waste time on the internet. I’m in here as we speak but my 5yr old has called me while I’ve been writing this to come look at him “spinning his fidget spinner on his thumb” and my 3yr old has needed more “Choco mil-ulk”. My 7yr old has also needed his VBS puzzle cube put back together for the third time. BUT my point to this post is if you notice, the pink sticky note right above my laptop has a quote on it. I read it countless times a day. It says: Happiness is not a destination. It is a method of life. – Burton Hills. Now I have no idea who Burton Hills is. I hope I’m not supposed to. But this quote makes me conscious to the fact that I have to choose to be happy every day no matter what. For someone who battles depression and anxiety, that is a difficult task. But I am choosing to be happy. I’m not going to make decisions based on other people and what they think about me or my family. I like my little cheap desk. It makes me happy. It makes me feel like I have a place to go to center myself. I hope to add to my quote collection. Maybe I will start to be more creative in how I display it one day. I’ve never claimed to be fancy though.
