This sounds so simple. Yet creating space can be challenging. It is the simple things that are sometimes the most difficult to accomplish. What if I told you that all you need is a few moments?
How does one create space? How do you create space that will allow you to navigate through all of your thoughts, fears and emotions leading to your ideal life vision?
Many things get in the way; family, extended family, friends, jobs, career, education, activities, household stuff like cooking, cleaning and laundry, or hobbies. The list is endless. There isn’t time to create space.
I hear this from clients all the time. It is hard to carve out time for friends and fun let alone, alone time set aside for internal problem solving, processing, dreaming, meditation or just simply being.
Creating a life vision can also seem daunting if you don’t have a regular practice in place.
Start by giving yourself a few moments. Moments that are just for you. You can think or feel whatever you want in those moments. They belong to you. Claim them for yourself. Have fun with these moments or be serious with them. It is up to you. Explore your time within these moments.
That is all you need to begin. Take a deep breath and release that breath. Focus inward and keep breathing. You can do this at your desk, on your way to the photocopier, on walk around the block, or while you are waiting for your laundry to finish.
That is all it takes to get started. You don’t have to create your life vision all at once. Your vision will evolve over time. Be kind to yourself and your vision. It is your sacred practice.
I find that creating space for me to experience these moments is so important. It is a necessity to keep myself grounded to keep focused, to relieve stress, to keep going, and to keep healthy.
