Thanks for sharing. Much of our remote culture we are 20ppl today came from the inspiration we got from reading your stories. We have a fully remote and distributed team and deal with the same types of challenges. It felt wrong and unprofessional. As time goes by, we learn to relax into the uniqueness of this experience and enjoy it fully. Thanks for inspiring us on the way.
Sooooo true, Tom! We recently got a puppy and so many of the same principles apply! These photos are so heartwarming!
A survival guide to sorting out arrangements for your children
Just goes to show you can have the best of the both worlds with a little bit of effort and planing ahead! First of all, I want to thank you for posting this, it made my evening. I just completed filling out the Happiness Hero application and used to work remote from home last year, now I am in an office here in Houston, TX. My wife and I found out several weeks ago that we are expecting our first kiddo, due in May, and this article could not have been more inspiring.
On top of that we are building our first custom home so there is lots happening in our life! I am very blessed to have read through all the wonderful comments and advice for parents that stay at home and work while having their kids around. I hope to maybe have the chance to get on board and join the Buffer team as well! Hey there Alex! Huge congrats to you and your wife!! Thank you so much for reading this and for your kind words! It happens too often around here, but it works well if you have a flexible scheduled.

Thanks for the uplifting advice! My oldest son will be graduating high school in a few weeks and my youngest, who will soon turn 15, just got his first job. Now I know I can do this! Thank you so much! Kim, thank you so much for your lovely comment! The emotions and concerns you expressed are exactly what I went through when our youngest left home. Just know that you will find your joy again, and be kind to yourself as you go through this time of transition. You have so many wonderful things ahead of you, and I wish you all the best!
I am hoping this will give me some ideas of where to go forward.

My son has moved to Australia which I find extremely saddening. I need some guidance of which direction to go in. Yes, this is such a transitional time, but I know good things are on the horizon for you, Helen. I hope something here will encourage you and give you some clarity regarding this new chapter of your life. Sending good thoughts your way!
I promise you, things will get better! Reading positive books and listening to motivational podcasts really helped me during the first few weeks. Sending love your way.otemymuciled.tk

Even though it may not seem like it, we all go through valleys and challenges. Difficult as it may be, think of this as a learning experience and growth opportunity.

Your situation will improve with time, but it will require effort and a positive attitude. You do have a home — a temporary one — caring for the person who cared for you when you were small. She needs you. Imagine how meaningful and important this is in the scope of her life and yours. You cannot gauge your self-worth against what your ex thinks of you. But, what if there was a different perspective?
Jane, thank you so much for this blog.
