In my constant rush from task to taks, meeting to meeting, I have become vibrantly aware of the need to build space into my usually packed schedule.  These spaces allow me to be more spontaneous (something out of my comfort zone), more present and less frenzied.

Some of that space comes when I am out for the day (since I work from home).  When I am going to be out for a meeting or business event, I often plan to stay out the whole day.  With long breaks between scheduled appointments or activities, it gives me time to linger after a luncheon to cultivate deeper connections with those I only see occasionally.  I have the space to stop at a new coffee shop to spend time writing articles or ideas for this blog.   I have the space to take advantage of a warm sunny day in the middle of winter by sitting outside. 

Slowing my pace and giving myself space brings a sense of peace, freedom and creativity to my life.

What would giving yourself some space do for you?
