Do you have room on your plate?

 

This season every title of the QBR interviews will double up as a journal prompt for our community's exploration. This week's prompt is brought to us by my conversation with Abigail Davidson

For me, when I think about my plate, here's what's true, right now...

Yes, thankfully, I do have room on my plate. That's the black and white answer. The more colorful truth? I have become fiercely protective of my 'life plate' and it's not so much as what I have on it as it is about how I feel when I look at it.

The result of using that lens means I am challenging myself to crowd out and eventually all together eliminate what doesn't make me feel the way I want. Which means my tendencies towards perfectionism, over-giving, not wanting to hurt people's feelings, and saying yes to too many things, are what's really being challenged. 

To me, our plates are a reflection of what we are currently prioritizing. And S P A C E is a priority of mine, so my aim is to always have room on my plate because...I believe empty can receive. And because S P A C E strengthens my ability to discern what'll truly benefit , me and those I serve, by being on my plate at any given point in time.  Making it a fluid, ever evolving experience and an invitational offering to get closer to your inner guidance.
