It’s something I talk about all the time with my incredible clients and also in my content. I live and breathe this deeply-rooted theme within myself daily.
Spaciousness can mean a lot of different things to each of us. Here’s just a sampling of what it can represent:
-Clarity and cohesiveness in your thoughts.
-A clean, tidy, and well-organized desk where you love to spend your time.
-Increased breathing room in your day because you’ve strategically dotted it with breaks throughout.
-How you communicate with yourself and others: deliberate pauses and giving yourself the grace to process your thoughts.
-A logical order to your task list because it’s been methodically planned out and you consistently adhere to it.
As we wind down 2022, I invite you to quietly sit back and with an objective eye, simply look at where you’ve already created that beautiful spaciousness that your business and life require.
And on the flip side of that, where is your life begging for even more spaciousness? Where are things feeling clunky and cluttered? In what situations do you feel like you don’t have a moment to think, let alone catch your breath?
Life is meant to be lived and savored. We’re meant to create meaning and memories for ourselves, both professionally and personally. The plans that we invest our time carefully curating and the intentions that we set for ourselves.
But also creating space for those joyful, unexpected moments that take us by surprise and leave an indelible mark. Think of them like happy deposits in our memory bank.
When our lives have been streamlined, decluttered, purged of the unnecessary, and have been well planned out, THIS is what creates the space for the joyful and unexpected to enter.
As you plan out what you want your 2023 to look like, really think about what changes (or even just simple tweaks) need to occur in order for you to simplify and streamline.
The more you claim your spaciousness, the more protective you’ll become of it. And the more you’ll proactively safeguard it by not allowing the unnecessary to detract from what really matters.
