I give up freely what is no longer serving me. I release it to create space for what inspires me.
I think we've all heard some form of this concept before. Whether or not you think of spring cleaning or that random thing you heard in yoga once. When it came to the more "woo-woo" side of the idea, honestly, I used to think it sounded like a load of shit.
In case you don't know the theory, the idea is that you have to create space to invite inspiration or whatever it is you're asking for into your life. That if you don't open up or ask for something, you won't get it.
Being a true Hufflepuff and believer that hard work is how you get what you want, it kind of always looked to me like people were using it as an excuse to sit and wait. And while some people probably do, I've finally come around to seeing how I may have been a bit close-minded to a pretty great practice.
I doubt anyone would describe me as very religious or spiritual, but I do truly believe there is energy in the universe. Big Magic style energy. And while they space may already exist for those energies to come into my life, if I'm not laying out the welcome mat, who's to say they'll stop at my door?
This idea has been screaming at me lately. Maybe it's all the yoga I'm doing. Maybe I'm just still super obsessed with Big Magic. Or maybe it's that I just have felt caved in from all sides in my life lately. My schedule is full. My work and home spaces are full. And above all, my headspace has been in overdrive pretty much all year.
Bottom line, it's brought down my life and our business.
So ironically, now that I've made the space to believe in creating space, I am ready to take this on. I want to ask the world for the inspiration I used to have. I am calling on that passion and drive to fuel me. I am asking for badass clients that we can do the most badass work for. And I've closed my eyes to visually imagine an expansion of the space in my head. I'm laying out the welcome mat and saying "Hello world! I'm ready now! Bring it on."
