Space can mean different things to different people.
Literal thinkers might imagine clearing one’s calendar, rearranging the house or leaving it all behind to bask in the Bahamas. Others think metaphorically, imagining time to ponder, to laugh freely, clear one’s head or simply do nothing.
If you’re anything like me, I find the concept of space incredibly attractive.
I live a rich but complex life, juggling multiple roles, projects, family responsibilities, bills and busyness. In the real world, I don’t have the luxury (or desire) to escape overseas for 6 months each year. Yet I do know the power of making space in work and in life, through doing everyday things well.
A few months ago, I asked myself what I’d do if I gained just a bit more space each day. Not hours. Just 20 or 30 minutes a day. Here’s what I wrote in my journal:
I’d like to walk more slowly. To arrive early. To breath deeply. To daydream more often. To go to sleep a bit earlier. To read that extra book to my kids. To have more energy for friends. To listen more. To pray more. To not feel rushed.
These aren’t big things in the scheme of life, but they have meant a lot to me.
