What is the meaning of “having space” or “getting your space back”? For starters it means you have the space to be who you are. It means you are truly shining and living from the inside out.
It means validating and honoring that you are good enough, have value and purpose; It is having the space to be who you are and live an authentic life.
There is so much more to you than meets the eye! You are more than just a physical body made up of chemicals and particles. Your spirit is what animates your physical body. Spirit shines in the deeds you do, how you communicate and what you create. It shines through your eyes and your smile and the very air about you.
Your spirit is unique and no two people shine or do things in exactly the same way but in today’s society there seems to be certain parameters or limits that many abide by to feel loved and/or fit in. There is a comparison to others. In other words we are bombarded with information about what we should or shouldn’t do, who we should be or not be, the perfect body, what love looks like, that we should or shouldn’t be in a relationship and what that relationship is supposed to look like etc.
Now I ask; Do you have the space to to be who you are and NOT compare yourself to others? Do you really have the space to be who you are, warts and all? I can tell you with all certainty that it is up to you to give yourself that space. There isn’t anything outside of you can or will do it for you.
If life isn’t progressing as you want it to more often than not you’ve lost your space and it really doesn’t matter to whom or what. It is possible to take back your space by allowing it just to BE. You instantly begin clearing your space when you give yourself the space to be who you are without comparing yourself to others or worrying if they will like you.
What if you were to be YOU and attracted people into your life who want to be near you just as you are? What if “just as you are” is GREAT and it’s a matter of loving, respecting and valuing yourself enough to give yourself a space to be without trying to control others or bending them to your will?
What if you accepted and allowed others to BE without judging where they are? I know there are a lot of questions here but they are good points to ponder. All of us (at least the ones reading and attracted to my blog) are working to be more loving and connected but until we find the connection and value the relationship we have with ourselves it is difficult to be who we are because we are so desperately trying to be someone we are not!
It is time to let go of who you think you should be and replace it with who you are! Give yourself the space to BE just as you are and ALL that you are. Let go of the “should be, would be, could be” and any pictures which say you’re not good enough. Say hello to and let go of any memory or energy caught up in the statement “you should be more like….(your sister, your brother, your colleague etc)” for being more like someone else takes you out of your space.
You just may be the flower that colors a black & white world! Do you have the space to shine from the inside out? You may be on the verge of creating something that not only brings great value to you but to the world at large. Do you have the space to do it? Having a space puts you in charge of your creations, your destiny and your life. If you’ve lost your space (which is much the same as being lost IN space) take it back by giving yourself the space to be you!~Shine Your Light Debbie
