My therapist suggested doing some things to make the space mine. She posed the idea as an exercise - if I were an animal at the zoo, what would I need to feel at home. So I made a few changes. Most notably, I put up pictures of *B* and my cats. That helped out a bit. I also made an emergency bag, but I bought a really pretty bag that made me feel happy and warm (I'm a little bit of a Vera Bradley junkie. Just a little.)
That was over a year ago now, and I've realized I'm still missing one vital piece of my habitat - plants. I love plants of all kinds, and there's very little greenery in my office. One person has an aloe plant that looks like it might be plastic. The best/worst part is I have a really nice sunny window just behind my desk. So I'm debating on what plant(s) I should bring into work.
