Today’s Word: ‘gap’ as in… an in between place to breathe.
When the day takes off at the speed life (yes, you read that right, the ‘speed of life’) we tend to miss some things. We can miss a lot of things. And when we start missing things we cease to thrive.
There’s a need for some gap.
Between the larger moments of each day there is a gap.
Between appointments on our calendars there is a gap.
Between this presentation and that meeting there is a gap.
Between our conversations with coworkers and our to-do lists with our loved ones there is a gap.
And more times than we’d like to admit, we miss the gaps because we’re in such a hurry to get to that next thing.
In the words of Lewis Carroll, “The hurrier I go, the behinder I get.” Arrrgh!
Note to self: Slow down. Stop. Take a moment and just dwell in the gap for a moment. It’s okay right there.
The gap is actually where we’re going to recoup what we’ve lost being in such a hurry to get where we think we need to go.
But when we enter the gap and we let ourselves breathe, we discover life, and more life.
Be in the gap.
