Let there be space

No two substances can occupy the same space at the same time. I’m no physicist, but I’m pretty sure this is impossible at the atomic level. In real life, this is easily illustrated by a fender bender… no two vehicles can (or should ever) occupy the same space simultaneously.

My one word for this new year is “spacious” in all of its manifestations physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Since this journey started last year I don’t classify it as a New Year’s Resolution, yet it will define this year in many ways. What one word do you choose?

I would also argue against making space by crowding whatever is already there, as illustrated by most people’s closets, garages, or junk drawers. As a metaphor for our own heart and mind, crowding is the antithesis of openness. At some point, the old and unviable tolerances must go. No more smothering! Let the newly-created spaces breathe.

Letting go invites abundance.

What will be the first thing you choose to let go?
