Yesterday morning, with a full to-do list and a busy, busy week, I discovered my laptop would not connect to the internet. The wireless is definitely acting up and I’ve tried everything I know short of throwing the thing out the window. For the sake of my own stress levels, I’ve shut it down and let it be. I simply don’t have time to tend to it this week. If you’ve sent me an email and I haven’t responded – now you know I’m not just ignoring you. If it’s urgent, can I suggest you call me?
With an article to get up at Joyful, Jubilant Learning, I borrowed hubby’s laptop and got to it.
My contribution to the April line-up at JJL is A Time for Space:
Whether we need to clean out the fridge, our wardrobe or the entire house; whether we need to reassess relationships to sort the good from the not-so-good; whether we need to turn down the volume a little and retreat; or whether we need to open space in our diaries, cull items from our to-do lists, ditch some obligations or say ‘no’ a little more often: creating space is about making room for living our best life.
You can read the full article at JJL.
My diary has just reminded me of one further thing I’d like to mention. Whilst posting here at The Clearing Space has been sporadic of late – as The Calm Space soaks up my energy and attention – I’m forever thrilled and grateful to those who continue to read here, those who comment and those who let me know privately their reactions to my occasional postings.
Yesterday, in amongst the kerfuffle of the laptop drama, was The Clearing Space’s Fourth Birthday!
When I began writing here at the suggestion of Leah Maclean, way back in 2005, I don’t think I ever imagined a fourth birthday happening. I took it day by day. Writing here has taught me that occasionally what I need to write is what someone else needs to hear. And that is the reason I have never given it up, despite it looking a little like I was going to sometimes.
If you’re reading this, then you are someone I truly value. Thank you from the bottom of my heart – the birthday wishes are all for you.
