Make space for you to be YOU
- Tracey Hancock
Sometimes, if we're honest with ourselves, we can get tied up in a story that has us believing we can't control anything. Take for instance how life seems to get busier and more pressured with each passing day. It can feel like demands, deadlines and endless To Do lists consume every waking moment and there's nothing you can do about it.
While you and I both know that there are things, like the weather, that can't be controlled, there is a lot in life that we can control.
Where are you telling yourself there's nothing you can do, BUT actually, you can do something to change it for the better?
It can be a confronting question and it might have your squirming in your seat or made you steaming mad. Stick with it because what you discover might just be life changing!
Imagine a boat at sea with no rudder or sails; it can't be steered, so it goes wherever the sea moves it. Then compare that with a boat that has a rudder and sails. This boat can be steered. The captain and crew sail the boat toward their destination making adjusting to the sea currents and wind along the way.
It's the same in life.
When we don't take control and steer our life, we're like a boat at sea with no rudder or sails. Moving at the whim of currents and winds, things you can't control, it can feel like you're a victim of whatever is going on around you.
But when you steer your life, you take control and chart the course forward. Yes you'll need to make adjustments along the way, and you might even decide to change course completely - you can do that because you're in charge.
To step into the drivers' seat and steer your life you'll need to create space for you. I don't mean physical space (although that's important and we'll get to that in another email!), you need to create space for you to think about YOU and your life. It's a space where you can put yourself and your health at the heart of your thinking.
Where to start...
Commit 30-60 minutes each week to thinking about you and your life. There are some valuable prompts to help you with this thinking in the 4Rs for Success Worksheet that I recently shared on Facebook.
If you missed seeing the worksheet, I've included a link to it below.

You deserve health, happiness and abundance - to live well - and it starts by creating space dedicated to you.
Will you commit 30-60 minutes this coming week to making space for you?
Imagine, how doing that - creating space for you - could change your life.
