Day 11 and 12 in the Creating White Space series have been a bit less eventful. Just trying to practice the ideas I am learning, make progress toward my goals, and see where it takes me.
Some of my goals are going better then others. On day 11 I was able to carve out a significant amount of time in the morning and it definitely has a positive impact on the rest of the day. Day 12 not so much…
I haven’t done as well with the commitment to lessen my phone use in the morning and to be frank it might not be totally realistic considering I do a lot of “business” and taking care of details at that time. However, doing it for a period of time and still getting up before Cashel with time to do a few of the bigger chores and hit my devotion seems reasonable. If I can do it. I have been enjoying getting up a bit ahead of him.
Haven’t been outside as much as I’d like to be and I can feel it. I thrive on getting out. Like outside. Not just out running errands. A walk, trip to the park, working in my yard, playing with Cashel in our yard…. My goal is to enjoy these fall days over my long weekend – I work at the beginning of the week – so the rest of the week is more open. I also have a play date I want to make happen with a new friend and some planning ahead for December. I find these kinds of things as “white space creators.”
I am learning about the power of planning.
I’ve given about 12 items away – if not a bit more. Which is meeting a goal. And am hoping to do another big purge in our garage. Maybe this weekend?!
While I am hoping to begin updating and organizing the baby’s room.
I’m also creating space in our home for Cashel. I’m working on a play “hallway.” Our home doesn’t have
a lot of any extra space so I’m getting creative. For example… a bookshelf on the stairwell landing for our books – the ones I just couldn’t give away. And at the top of the stairs in the hallway I am creating a space for Cashel to read, color, draw, imagine, and play. It’s starting to come together. Still missing a few small touches but I’m happy. I love seeing our whole space get utilized well. Clearing out space, creating white space, in a physical sense does help with this.
For now hear is a black and white sneak peek at our “Playway” – stay tuned for updates.
I’ve got more processing, floating around in my head and heart, but need a few days to really think…. stay tuned….
