Space to Write

Something about these cold, rainy days makes me love to listen to Priscilla Ahn. :) Isn’t she delightful? Anyway, I’ve had her Space to Write in my mind for days.

In our family, most everything is shared, and we love it that way. There is rarely a sense of “that’s mine,” which has brought me much peace as a mother. But lately, I have also noticed a need for something individual once in a while…namely, space. Everyone needs their own space, just once in a while, to create in the way that they need to.

We’re all different. Some of us, like two of my lovely friends (Nicole and Tara), love to sew and create and blow others simply away by the beauty of their creations. Though I wish I had that gift, right now in my life, I have others that I work on, like my yoga, among other things. I have my own little spaces that I work on that creating and dreaming…like my yoga mat and my computer.

Lately, as my little ones have started to express themselves more and more through yoga, my heart has sung. I know what it can do for them. They have all tried to share the floor or take turns with my extra mat, but they have needed their own little “space to write” their own little yoga story.

“Space” now exists for each of them. Last week, we made them each their own mats, just the right size to fit a little body on, and just right to fit all four + mom’s mat into our small living room.

It is amazing what this “space” has given them! Yoga time is so much better, and I can see them reaching and creating further than they ever tried before. It has been amazing to watch. :)
