Working For Yourself

Sometimes I can’t even begin to explain how lucky I feel to be my own boss.

Last weekend a friend, my partner, the dogs and I went to my friend’s house – about 3 1/2 hours away from Berlin. The house is in a small village – lots of fields and hills around, some horses, some chickens – but not much else.

It made me so happy to be outside the city, that I decided to stay until the end of the month.

Working for yourself can be hard: time management, finances, advertisement and also getting all the actual work done, can be a challenge. And after months of home office and limited other inputs, things weren’t getting any easier.

So a change offered itself, and it makes me extremely happy that I had the opportunity to take it.

The dogs and I will be out in the fields for the next weeks, taking occasional breaks for some work. Or the other way around. We will see.
