The Gift of Space

I was talking to a good friend about how our last year had gone - mine has been on the tumultuous side, for sure.  Some great (moving back to the farm), some hard (death of my dad, which precipitated the move), and some meh (selling a house, renovating a house) - but all consuming of mental bandwidth.  My friend has had a different year for sure - she met the love of her life - but still a year that brought a lot of change.  We were remarking that sometimes the best gift you can give yourself is space.  This year I took some space away from creating new jewelry or forging ahead to new places with my business, because I just needed some bandwidth for The Year of Change.  And I'm glad I did.  Frankly it wouldn't have made much difference if I'd approached this year with grace or with ire, because I just didn't have more to give anyway.  And I certainly didn't always succeed in the grace department - although I figured out that I had a way better chance of carrying some grace forward if I also put yoga into the equation.  So while I didn't have any new products for a while, I do have some nifty new arm balances - and now I can feel the equilibrium coming back, some space to get back to my regularly scheduled program. I'm happy to start feeling some normal, but also incredibly grateful that I had the gift of space.
