I realized today the importance of creating more space in my life. When I feel harried, late, rushed, overbooked, I become an irritable, impatient person. When I have time to breathe, to do one thing at a time, to enjoy the moment without worrying about what I have to do next, life feels so great.
Further, when I feel I have this space, this time, I'm a much happier mother, wife, teacher, friend, and human in general.
I read this great quote...
“Our life is the creation of our mind.”
And it made me think of how much I live in my head, fretting to get somewhere, fretting to get something done, multitasking.
With space, what goes on in my mind is so much warmer, more open, more joyful, because I can be truly present and see all the good around me.
