When in traveling for my job I miss my family like crazy. I enjoy my work and enjoy collaborating with my colleagues around the U.S., yet wish my husband was in my hotel room bed when I’m lying alone at night.
I actually accomplish a ton when I’m away from home because the distractions are not there after dinner. It’s just me and the perfectly made hotel king size bed with perfectly pressed sheets, battling it out…keep working or go to sleep in the perfect bed.
If you travel for your job I urge you to take advantage of that time alone. Do something for yourself while you have some free time. Do something you dream about doing when you are busy at home with family and work. I like to read my kindle books, research new designs and plugins for my blog or research new people to interview in TacomaWorkingMom TV.
Traveling cross-country is bittersweet. Take advantage of it and make it worth your while, professionally and personally. Refresh your mind and heart so that when you return home you will be fully present with your family.
