I subscribe to a ‘Daily Inspire’ email from TJEd.org. I get a lot of emails, especially now, from the discussions I follow on my history course, from comments to articles I read on the ‘Psychology Today’ site, blogs I follow etc… so to subscribe to something else, especially something daily, it has to be good and I think this IS good, it’s inspiring enough!
Today’s ‘daily inspire’ was on the same subject I posted about yesterday – having “the right kind of vacuum” in your life/your kids’ life, as the De Mille’s put it. I like that expression. We need “the right kind of vacuum” because, “A certain kind of emptiness of time and space invites creativity, initiative and collaboration within the home” because, “After all: staying home is not the same thing as doing nothing worthwhile.” Agree 100%!
|Pause and Reflect|
-Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea
We need to say “no” to some things so we can give our full attention to the most important things–especially the things in our homes.
With the end of the calendar year, hopefully some of your projects are coming to fruition, and you time will free up a little. Remember the importance of “the right kind of vacuum.”
A certain kind of emptiness of time and space invites creativity, initiative and collaboration within the home.
Don’t rush into next year’s projects without taking some time to pause and reflect.
After all: staying home is not the same thing as doing nothing worthwhile.
