Intentional Space

I’ve been hearing and seeing a lot of people saying that they’re just ready for things to go back to normal.

And I was right there with them.

I was longing for the day when things would return to the way they were just a month ago. But suddenly, as more school districts shut down for the remainder of the year and I read more reports with intimidating graphs, it sunk in that this *waves hand around the room* is our new normal.
 
A part of me had been treating this whole thing the same way I treat the holiday break in December: a short disruption to my regular routine.

If I could just hang on long enough, everything would be fine.

Because of that I was just trying to keep it together until my schedule could go back to normal. What I really needed was to make sure that I had what I needed to take care of myself now that life was dramatically different.


More is being expected of us than ever, and it’s exhausting.

But here’s a real question for you:

When you take a look at all of the things on your overloaded plate, is there space for you on it?


Space that lets you do whatever helps you feel fully restored, less anxious, and gives you room to just breathe?

Sometimes we forget that it’s up to us to create that space. The world is not going to give it to us.

So we’re going to create it together
