in my space

Lately we did some rearranging of things at Crossfire (that's my church).

Out of that came this ever-so-peaceful meeting space. 

It's adjacent to my office, and honestly, I can't believe how much we use it. Sometimes a few times a day. A space to hold real conversation, comfortably; without being surrounded by the chaos that is often my actual office. 

Sometimes I wander in there by myself and whisper, "Thank you." 

And... it turns out... that when extra chairs are cleared out of that chaotic office of mine... and meetings are in a different room... along with some of the for-public-use resources... it turns out my office is a way less chaotic space too. 

Sometimes I just look around it and let out a sigh of relief.

I find it's very hard to get the right clutter-space balance. My home (which I share with 3 others) has every single surface with something on it. Every possible storage space is used. Things are stacked on top of each other. The hallway is a nightmare to negotiate at night.

And at work my space is almost clutter-free. I wonder why :-)

I like your office - plenty of stuff and personalisation, but still space to work.
