How do we mold our plans for what’s going on around us so we can include self-care, our personal lives, and work? This is the magic of clearing our plates.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our lives go in seasons. Not necessarily the ones that exist outside, although they impact us, the ones that exist within our own rhythms.
As we enter a new season, with new activities, we can reexamine our priorities. What is important?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When we take time to reprioritize, clear our plates, and then only keep the most important tasks – this is where we find our spaciousness even in a busy season.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you are feeling crowded or pulled, it may be time to clear your plate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Start by envisioning a clear plate, and only place back on that which is urgent. Imagine the space between the items, nothing touching or bumping up against each other. Breathe in deeply as you sit to observe your plate.
What do you imagine to be the most important areas of your life in this season? Are there too many ‘things’? How can you one go? How about another?
It is often that we believe without certain priorities, we will not be successful. Yet, what is success if we are busy feeling pulled from role to role?
There is a version of success that has us flowing between aspects of our lives.
This is the magic of clearing our plates.
Feel free to access this plate clearing visualization. Take a notebook with you to write down these items that come up! Then start to think about all the left over items.
How will these exist in the space between the items?
