I need space. I'm also an only child. It's possible that's why I have an overwhelming need to spend large chunks of time on my own. Or perhaps there's no connection and the need for autonomy is a common human trait.
I adore my family and enjoy spending time with friends. But when it's all said and done I really like being alone.
I'm not talking about the need to be forever alone. Gosh no. The nights would be lonely and the dark could bring monsters. But I thrive on having a few hours a day where there is nobody else in my space.
And when I say "thrive" I actually mean "survive". If I don't get the house (and therefore my work space) to myself, the walls start to close in and my chest becomes heavy.
So while I thoroughly enjoyed having the kids home for the last 7 weeks and the hubster doing his "summer work from home" thing, what I'm lovin' about life this week is getting back to having some space.
It's amazing what I can achieve when I'm in my own company.
So tell me, do you like being alone?
What type of environment helps you to thrive?
When are you the most productive?
What are you lovin' about life this week?
