Finally

For anyone who isn't friends with me on my Facebook, I finally got the approval to work from home. I am really happy as I am sure you are all aware... we have had decent weather until this weekend... so, I was approved just in time before the winter started. I took this weekend to set everything up and verify it works properly. Down the road, I will be supplied the proper equipment from work, for now, I will make due with what I have... My friend is taking me over to the office some night this week so that I can retrieve my binders and personal items.
 
I changed my alarm clock right away, I am looking forward to an additional hour and a half of sleep... then I am making breakfast for Valentina. This has been the first weekend in a while that I have been so relaxed... I completed all the little projects I needed to do... in the past, I felt rushed trying to do everything I had to do and still get some downtime. I don't feel stressed about the long commute... once I got home on Friday, I realized how tense I was every morning and night... knowing I had the long trip. I suddenly felt at ease.
It's funny what I pushed myself to do, then when it changed, I realized through the transition that I was tense with having to force myself out daily. I also made plans with some friends to visit them... I know I will need to get out as people were concerned that with working at home I wouldn't get out. However; I think I will actually get out more and visit, hang with my friends.  I have actually felt cut off from my friends due to being exhausted by the time I got home from work.
 
I am sure I mentioned that I literally had a three hour plus commute per day, I am excited to have that time back to do more meaningful activities. I am considering joining the gym with the pool again, I would have time to enjoy it. I found I missed swimming after I spent the summer going to the lake with my friend.  I am thinking it will be a good way get back into exercising without putting too much stress on my knees and back.  
My mood changed drastically this past weekend, I am feeling like I have more opportunities opened to me. I also changed departments at work .. I am excited to be in a new position. It's nice to have a few good things happen to me all at once... I have hope that the transitions will put me on the path I've been working towards. I am even looking forward to the Christmas holidays, it has been a long time since I felt good about it... I've invited some people for dinner as noone should be alone this time of the year. 
 
I am going to purchace a bike this Spring, I have decided that this year is the one that I get back into living a healthy life. No more excuses, now that I have the time and means to achieve my goals... eventually I want to get back into walking, once I strengthen myself with swimming and biking. It's time for me to get back on the healthy track and do something for myself... Finally

  10. Congratulations Launna!!!!! Words can't express how happy I am for you to be working from home, finally! I know how long it's been and how much of a stress it was putting on you. I hope with all that weight lifted off your shoulders you will be so much happier! This is amazing news!

  11. Aww Launna you have no idea how happy I feel for you after reading this post. I know very well how long you've been waiting for that approval and I completly relate, when you receive a news or in this case an approval that has been on the top of your mental wishlist then your mood changes for the good.
    I also think your new home office looks amazing, very clean, neat and organized. It's important having a nice place like yours to give us an extra motivation, right?
    The changes that come with this sound awesome, especially the part of having more time for yourself and for Valentina. It's so sweet that you're gonna be able to make breakfast for her. The idea of swimming is a really good one, Launna. Besides the fact that it's a great exercise, they say the contact with water is always relaxing so I'd say go ahead and do it for sure! :)
    Looking forward to reading more about this new chapter of your life, my friend!

  13. Launna! Aqueles produtos são muito bons. Depois que comecei a usar meu cabelo cresceu três dedos! ;D

    Fiquei muito feliz de saber que finalmente você está trabalhando em casa. Agora você vai ter bem mais tempo para projetos pessoais! 2016 está acabando da melhor maneira possível, ein?! E 2017 vai ser ainda melhor!

    Ótima segunda!

    Beijo! ^^

  15. Three hours is totally crazy..oh my god, especially when you have kids and during the winter time it´s like a huge challenge. Im really really happy to hear that it finally worked out. I agree with you that you will go out much more often, because you now have the time to visit friends and to do all the stuff you have´t done all the time because you were to tired by getting home that late :) Your working place at home looks amazing!!!
    Cant wait to hear what you have done by having that much time now!!
    Many hugs from Germany,
    Martin

    Wonderful news.
    Enjoy the remainder of November and have a most brilliant December.

    All the best Jan

  18. Throwing confetti and releasing balloons around the house! Yeah! So excited for you that you are finally able to start working from home. What a difference it will be without that three hour commute. Plus- driving and being pressured to get home or to work just adds to stress. I am SOOOOOOO happy for you. This is coming at the perfect time and you are going to love the extra time on your hands now. :)

  32. Launna, I'm so happy for you. It's about time, eh?! I can't imagine doing the 3 hr commute. Insanity! Yeah, no wonder you were always exhausted! Just going to the park with my baby for an hour is exhausting, say nothing about traveling for three times that! Here's to great things to come.

  52. Way too go, Launna and seems like everything is finally falling into place for you and I'm so happy for you! I was just talking to my husband last night about something similar and that how happy I am with my current part time job. Yes, it's not glamorous but I'm lucky to work in something that I love and passionate about and even though I'm not earning much, I feel so much happier with this job than my previous corporate job.

I love and appreciate all genuine comments, to save a little time, I won't be commenting on the comments on my blog (unless you don't have a blog), I will just visit your blog and comment there, if you have left a meaningful comment for me... I would much rather spend the time reading and commenting on a few extra blogs ❤
