Our Newfound Sacred Space

Coach T is the Art teacher at our kids’ school. She is one of the best teachers any of our kids have ever had. And, her birthday was on New Year’s Eve, so we made her a birthday sign 🙂
My new favorite tea 🙂 I gave up coffee, sort of out of nowhere, about a week ago. And, became a tea addict instead.
Need to start getting back into breakfast smoothies. Found this recipe from last year that was just right.
When her and Bode hit 200 calories on their partner workout.
I don’t know why I think this pillow is hysterical. ALMOST gave in and bought it. Then, thought about all this talk about making space for growth…
This book is slowly changing my life.
Ben’s habit of leaving flowers around is clearly not being handled.
Coach T got us hooked on polymer clay. SO MUCH FUNNN. I know it’s obvious, but we made a salad with kiwi, blueberries, grapes, kale with shredded carrots, cherry tomatoes, carrots…and, a dessert plate 🙂

Once we can find the courage to let go of the things that no longer serve us, we will end up with newfound space. 

This space, however, must be respected. 


We must not confuse more space on our book shelves as automatic space to fill with new books. More room in our drawers is not a way to justify more clothing purchases. Getting rid of sweets from our diet does not make drinking more alcohol acceptable. And, breaking off a toxic relationship should not find you quickly rebounding into another new one just because you have a void to fill.

This space, this sacred space, must be reserved and replaced with things that we now know will offer growth. A less cluttered environment will enable us to see, think, and feel more clearly.

Because clutter is distracting. And, distractions are like red lights that can tragically slow us down on our road to finding joy in our every day experiences. There is a time and place for distractions, but it’s important to be honest with yourself: they do not move you forward in any way.

May we rather use this beautiful new space as a place to look inward, think with clarity, and begin exploring new roads that we are now able to access with a newfound sense of freedom. 

This is when the magic can finally happen.
