Don’t…Step Into My Office

I believe in personal growth. I have a daily reading and listening goal. (Read for 15 minutes or a chapter and listen to a podcast and/or continuing education mp3 respectively.) How do I do this? Step into my office. Or not.

I’m not trying to conjure up any unpleasant images but, my tiny master bathroom is my office.

My office

It’s where I read, listen to podcasts/CEU’s, it’s where I pray, it’s where I think. Unfortunately, the door doesn’t quite close and therefore, doesn’t quite lock. Sometimes, I have to hold the door shut with my foot or hand from little people who need Mommy NOW. (It’s like phone time. The exact time I’m in the bathroom is the exact time when they have a question or need me to open a snack bag or cut a random hanging string off a sock.)

Some day…

Dream Office

this WILL be my office/library where I can have LOTS of quiet prayer, study, think-tanking, blogging. Why? Because my children will be older and they may not need my immediate attention. They will be out of the house, but welcome in any time day or night. I’ll be craving for them try to burst in the door for help. (Just another reminder to myself, that even though I have to fight for a few minutes to myself, I still have to fight to enjoy the moments I am living in right now. There will be plenty of alone time in the future.)

I am still going to take my 15 minutes where I can find them. {I love my kids, but minimal personal space is cool too.} So, for now, don’t step into my office.
