How’s your office?
Recently I was straightening up my office. You know how it is, your things get moved around as you work so you put them back where you can find them.
Well, I noticed that there were some things that I really like that I had put up on top of a bookshelf. A wood carving from China a friend brought me. A piece of beautiful pottery. They were up high where I don’t look that often. So I moved them down on one of my desks to see them more often.
Next, I noticed that I had put all of my family’s pictures in my studio. And that was fine, but they had been there for a while and they had become familiar to that space. So I moved them out on a desk, facing me, where I can enjoy them more.
Life is a lot like my office. Some of the things you say you value may be in a place you don’t look very often so you don’t live out of them. Or, some of the relationships you say are vital may be so familiar you stop treasuring them.
This year, move your life around to better reflect your priorities as you listen to life and make a positive life.
