LESSON LEARNED: DON’T CRAMP YOUR STYLE!
I had decided a while ago to go back to using an old, beautifully-worn leather day planner cover with the smaller week-at-a-glance refill, as my appointment book. Yes, I’m still a hard copy girl. LOL There seemed to be something familiar and nostalgic about the smaller leather one, and all the years of my business it had served me, and all the dear clients whose names had been written in it.
In recent years, I have been using the large week-at-a-glance with large print. 😉 So this week I started to use the old leather one and realized that not only did I have to write as though under a microscope, but it was not really accommodating my expanding client list, which I am loving. I recognized it as a “personal glass ceiling” I had created! Wow!
So I made a decision this morning, got on Amazon and ordered my new larger week-at-a-glance, large print, just like the one I’ve been using for a number of years.
As I chatted with my friend this morning about this, she pointed out to me that the word “small” jumped out at her in what I had written. I realized there’s a precious lesson in this seemingly ordinary change of “office supplies” about spaciousness, about creating space for the largeness with which I want to live for the blessings that are coming in. I sure don’t want the Universe to read this tiny cramped little space and say “Well, she hasn’t got room for this.” Absolutely not!
All of which is by way of saying to myself:
“Be bold, think big, live large, and make room for big blessings to come into your life and take up space! Claim this larger, expansive new space that is yours!” 💗
Women, especially empaths, can sometimes unconsciously shrink our energy in a variety of ways. I don’t want you to do that. I’m glad I caught this and made the shift into a larger space for myself, my energy, my work, my dreams. I hope this helps you to be more aware and evaluate where you may be shrinking and where you want to expand into more spaciousness to accommodate your amazingness!
You can be sure I will be looking for other places in my life to expand and create the same kind of spaciousness to accommodate the huge, amazing surprises the Universe has in store for me. 🙂
How much space is in your life?
