Do you have the space to exist?

You happen in the space of your existence. (Share on Twitter)

Take a break. Hustling and bustling life have become without the space for a moment to stand still and take a cup of tea without worrying about itself being lost.

The easiest thing to do is the most difficult to come by. A space. A break. A moment untethered. Within ourselves, organizations, or societies, the hamster wheel keeps running, and yet no destination is reached.

We love our KPIs (key performance indicators), so here is one for you.

How many spaces do you have in an hour, a day, a week, a month where you are untethered? Meaning your mind is not dancing, and your mouth is not running, or your ears are bombarded by this and that. Measure it.

And it’s not about meditating either. It is simply being. Once you find the space to happen, you will become. And in becoming, you will flourish.

Recognize you need the space.
Understand that’s what your missing
… and accept it.

Don’t let the moment leave you without allowing yourself to be.

Do you have the space to exist?

her, he enfolded me.

And when I descended to the valleys and the plains God was there
