Making Room

The truth is there are only 24 hours in a day.

We're finite creatures with a limited amount of mental bandwidth, patience, interest and ability.

And for this space in my life, I am focused on running, lifting, pushing my body...reading...writing...and spending time with my family and friends.

So, I've decided to make room for that which matters and to remove that which doesn't like:

Making beds, putting laundry away immediately, sweeping the floors, getting the Christmas lights/decorations down in a timely way.

I want my 24 hours to be intentionally filled with space to "be" and to create and not exclusively to react.

So, to that end, I'm making room.  You're more than welcome to stop by whenever you want, just move the laundry before you sit down on the couch.

  1. Kelly I am right there with you. I actually like the Christmas lights on the fake white tree given to us last year after we had just moved. I am reluctant to take it down not because it takes a lot of time and care but because the lights and ornaments bring me joy. I find them relaxing like lighting a fire in my fire place. I guess I should string lights around my room so I feel like I am sleeping under the stars :)
