Hi guys…I wasn’t able to share anything on Monday as I am extremely busy making changes to my life due to Covid and its effect on my coaching business. My Business is now fully online so as a result, I no longer need or require a brick and mortar office. I have thus given up my office which means organising to dispose of all of my furniture and dealing with the ton of paperwork that I don’t want to carry home where I will now be working.
I didn’t realise how much paper one accumulates after 14 years in an office, especially as we didn’t get rid of anything. So it’s all about sorting through all of that paper, organising to have it shredded as most of it is confidential information on our many clients, then removing signs and art. I spent the entire day sorting through and separating paperwork….OMG!! It was exhausting. I have a headache now, but I was able to finish it and luckily I was able to sell off all of the furniture weeks before and clean up and remove the other odds and ends and despite that I still have quite a few boxes to take home and some kitchen items etc. OH! It was easy to set up this office but it’s harder to break it down.
I must say there is a part of me that is a bit sad as I’ve been going to work there for the past 14 years and now I will no longer belong there. I was able to put my friend up to rent the space as my landlord was in a dire state due to losing my rental funds and his business is a Travel Agency and the borders are closed so his situation was bad, but now he has a renter again. I’m so glad for him. He has been very good to me and we had a great relationship. But change is never easy and it can be so sad. You feel as if something has changed and saying goodbye to the normal or what you’re accustomed to is always difficult, but in this case very necessary. It is also a bit scary as you don’t know what can change again, but life is all about change, it’s how you handle it.
I feel a little uncomfortable with change initially even though I accept it easily but there is a part of me that feels the loss of the “ususal” to move to the kinda unknown, which is very similar to the effect of Covid itself on all of our lives. I’ve been working from home for a while before this happened but my husband wasn’t but now he is and he likes it but I had to move things around at home and that was little annoying at times but again it’s getting into acepting the change even if you feel a bit “put out”. But humans get used to change eventually some adjust faster than others so it’s back to work as usual now that our home has been outfitted as an office.
What changes do you now have to adjust to that aren’t comfortable but you’re getting there? Check you later guys…stay safe, wear your mask, wash your hands, social distance…it’s working for us in my country so it can work where you are as well but everyone has to do it not just some. Love to you all.
