Creating space equates to freedom. What do I mean by this? In April, I over-scheduled myself. Instead of using my calendar of pre-determined appointment times for clients to set appointments, I opened my personal time on weekends, evenings and even before my normal starting time to allow them to book appointments. I did this due to an influx of new clients, which is a positive thing. What created anxiety in me was not having enough time for me. I found myself rushing about and being more impatient and short-tempered.
In April, my husband also began working in the business. And so I took some time to help him get acclimated, but to him it didn’t feel like enough time. I also felt like I didn’t have enough time to really explain things to him and to move at a reasonable pace in my own life. I knew I couldn’t keep up the pace. So in May I took a full week off with my husband, and I’m booking time on my calendar to spend on leisure and quiet, reading more books and having more fun.
I am also planning to journal more and release negative emotion through emotional freedom technique, also known as tapping. I have always honored my self-care routine of exercise, meditation, prayer and gratitude journal, but I need to schedule more time to tap and journal my feelings. If you want to feel more free in your life, the key is to time block your time and then STICK to it. The most pivotal time blocking is for your self-care routine. Do this for yourself.
Put YOU first. And then continue to block enough time for yourself to have the space to slow down and go within. Afraid to slow down the frantic pace and go within? If so, what are you afraid to face? Not thinking about it won’t solve anything. No matter what may be going on in your life, it CAN be handled. You may feel trapped right now in your circumstances.
I understand because I have felt this way in a relationship, in my prior career, and even in my financial situation. The good news is that you don’t have to fix everything in one day. It just takes one small step and one small act of courage to begin to change your life in dramatic, positive ways, BUT you have to take that first step. Creating space in your life to slow down, get quiet, look within for the answers, is the key. Ask yourself what is the next right step you can take today.
