That’s what the poster in my bedroom said when I was a teenager.
And my friend Mary Lou made me a plate with the same saying on it.
I’ve been thinking about that, and about my friend Candace’s question . Because it seems I ***am*** clearing a space.
In my home, for sure – I’ve been on the hunt for what can be given away, thrown away or somehow repurposed. definitely making room. And while I wish I were making MORE room in my body, the 10 pounds that have evaporated (seriously where DO those pounds go?) seem part of the same process.
My job ends a week from Friday – and that makes room in my calendar and will perhaps clear our some of my savings as I await the Next Big Thing.
One of my big campaigns this whole year has been about being more conscious about the people with whom I choose to spend time. The Universe made it abundantly clear that being more judicious was in order with a few back to back boundary-crossing ‘friends’ making it clear that it was time, as Nancy Reagan counselled, to “just say no”.
The cliché is that nature abhors a vacuum and some of the open space rather quickly got filled – I took two photography classes over the winter, started blogging and have spent more time with people who are delightful.
But it does seem that there is a confluence of things going that are creating quite the open bough.
And I’m curious as to what singing bird(s) will alight.
