I really needed headspace. You probably do too. Maybe from work, or school, maybe you have kids or a marriage you’re working on. Whatever you’re currently caught up in, I promise you need a little space. The amount of time should be reasonable and attainable, but it should be a challenge. It should force you to make time.
Have you ever gone for a swim, or watched someone else swimming, and when they come up for air it looks a little like they’re gasping for life. That’s probably you. In your spare moments where you think you’re making time for yourself. Running to the gym during your lunch break, getting a quick yoga practice in before your baby wakes up, getting your nails done on a Saturday before you run off to do your laundry… and pick up groceries… and drop off dry cleaning.
It’s not enough. I’ve had some time to breathe and I’m challenging you to do the same.
headspace: ‘A person’s state of mind or mindset’- the literal definition is the empty space leftover at the top of a container.
Create the extra space in the container of your life.
Distance provides clarity and perspective. I’ve taken a few months to myself, and while all of the time wasn’t exactly productive, it was definitely necessary. I was angry. At first it wasn’t a break by choice. I didn’t have any words. Whatever I was going through wiped me blank and empty; like pressing a mute button and trying to make out what they’re saying. I felt as if I had been robbed.
Going through something so embarrassing and frustrated turned out to be the best thing that could happen. I’m free. I will never have to fear rejection from it again. The worst is over
This distance has created a new meaning to what this is. What I want to do here. This is a space I’ve painted in my mind. The distance has wiped it clean and I’m ready to start fresh and I’m working right at the roots. All of the things I want to say bit by bit. The place to make sense of the words bouncing in my head- creating order and most importantly; space.
