When you are used to being tightly scheduled, it might be difficult to settle in when you have all the time in the world. It's tough to be OK with not going, going, going all the time.
It might be difficult deciding what to do. I usually do not have the luxury of open space in my calendar to decide what to do next. I know that is my own fault. It's my choice to keep the schedule I keep. It would seem strange not to. Doesn't everyone else do the same thing I do?
When my schedule is packed, I DO NOT HAVE TO CHOOSE. I don't necessarily have to think and feel. I can just keep going mindlessly from one thing to the next.
By decreasing what's on my schedule maybe I will get a better understanding of what I love to do.

What happen to you when there is space in your calendar? Do you rush to fill it? Afraid you will get board? Do you wonder what to do next?
In this particular instance for me, I chose to read and in reading, and in reading this sentence popped out for me.
"Even small casual things take significance if they are washed in space" from A Gift from The Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh.
Wow, Anne Morrow Lindbergh has read my mind.
Maybe you will pick up A Gift from The Sea and explore space and time in your calendar.
I challenge you to not fill in the space as it becomes available in your calendar or even get rid of a thing or two that is already on there. Maybe you will get the opportunity to see the significance in those everyday small things that we do.
Do you think you can do this? What would be the most difficult part of creating space for you? Share in the comments section below so we can all learn from each other, and like and share this blog post so others might ponder their use of their calendar.
This blog is a reflection of things going on my life and the world around us. Through yoga we always try to look at things in a different light!
