Sometimes the universe works in mysterious ways, and you have to roll with the punches. A couple of months ago I was in the unenviable situation where I had to move house quite abruptly. Despite this being a rather negative situation, it turned out to have quite a few positive aspects to it.
One of the biggest benefits is that now that we’re not running out of a home office is that we’re now able to host clients on-site, opening up a plethora of support opportunities to help with employment goals. Our office is collocated with our sister company, Finny Migs, which sells individual pieces of LEGO® online. In the next week or so, I’ll be posting about some of the program we can now offer as a result of this move.
Instead of LEGO® lining my hallway, and taking up one of my bedrooms and the dining room, we now have a dedicated space that’s also free from a certain cat who likes to knock things over, and I now have a dining table that I can actually eat at (or store other things on). This new workspace also has a better flow, with everything being more central, as opposed to being spread throughout the house.
Whenever I’m faced with a challenging situation, instead of playing the victim, as would have been the case in the past, I now ask myself “how can this benefit me”? While it’s not the most extravagant of spaces, it’s a step in the right direction that allows us to do things we couldn’t do previously, and I’m quite grateful that we’ve gone through what we went through so that we’re better able to service our clients.
