Mantra Monday: Find the Space

madewithOver(2)

Last week was full. There were events and deadlines and unexpected twists to my days. As Sunday dawned, I could feel myself craving space. Looking at my calendar last night I knew I wanted to carve out time where I could slow down, get quiet, light a candle and have a cup of tea.

This week I need to find the space in my life.

I’m actively searching out pockets of air where I can breathe more deeply. I’m allowing for moments that are empty of to-do’s and should’s and have to’s. This is a challenge for me as I’m good at keeping lists long and filling quiet moments with Facebook. But space is where magic happens – it’s where creativity and intuition flow. It’s where we hear the messages that come from within.

I invite you to find the space in your own life this week and experience what it’s like to sit in the middle of it, listening.

And if your life feels full of space right now, what is it you need to find this week? I’d love to know.

    So much *this*.
    I have been feeling as though my every second is accounted for, and even that is not enough to do all the things I need to do. I’ve been retreating into myself and I feel somewhat guilty for not returning phone calls and messages, but I need a moment to just breathe and find myself again. It’s only recently that I’ve realised how important that is for me.
    I hope you made yourself some time, a cup of tea by your side, and a gently glowing candle.

      Risha – I did (even when I thought I couldn’t) and it felt good and needed. Wishing you sweet space to breathe this week too.

  2. I love this mantra, Alana. And love your story that makes it come even more alive. Blessings on the rest of your trip!
