As a working mama I spend 75% of my day in my office. When I'm in there I find myself zoned into my work. I don't have time to get down on the floor and play with my puppies or push all of the buttons on the toys to make them light up. I definitely don't have time to chat with all of my friends and family and find that at the end of the day I feel like I missed something.
To combat these feelings I came up with an inspiration board. I hung this in my office and time goes by the collection on the board grows and grows! I have pics of Brooks, my pups, my hubby and my friends. I have little inspiration notes, magazine cut outs and things to keep me going through the day.
While this doesn't completely take away the need for some time away from the office, it does make it a little easier when I take a break, look up and see my beautiful boy's eyes shining down. It definitely reminds me why I'm in the office in the first place :).
