Saturday was the first day all summer with nothing on the agenda. We weren’t on a road trip with miles to make that day. No soccer tournament to drive to and cheer at, no swim meet to attend, no party to buy a gift or make a salad for, no garden to weed, no class to teach, no nothin’ on the calendar. It was awesome.
I didn’t have an itch to make plans.I didn’t feel the urge, the need or have any desire to make myself busy. So unlike my nature. I am a doer. I am a planner. I am a check it off the list kinda gal. But lately, I have noticed a huge shift within. Less is more. No plans are a good thing, not a sign of laziness or lack of motivation.
In this go-go world we need to create more space for nothing. It gives our minds a break, our bodies room to breathe and our hearts space to be.
Will you listen to what all of you needs rather than what your agenda says? Or better yet, will you schedule nothing and be cool with that?
Saturday I showed up more kind, more authentic and definitely more open. A bit softer. Ahh, I say yes to nothing. For nothing always leads to something. It’s not being attached to what that something is that gives me life. More breathing room. Grace.
Hi, I’m Jenny Gwinn McGlothern, Certified Transformational Master Life Coach, Retreat Leader and Writer. As founder of my retreat business, Mama Needs A Refill, LLC, one way I know I fill my cup is by showing up to a blank page to write. Thank you for stopping by and reading my Random Monday Thoughts, because I will be honest that fills my cup too, knowing others are reading my filled page. Life is too short to blog about anything else unless it touches my heart. Please know I appreciate you joining me on this journey whether you visit every week since I began in 2008 or this is your first blog stop.
