On my morning walks with God, I am fortunate enough to live right on a golf course that provides tons of space and beauty. Winter is here so the golfers are gone, the geese come back, the hawks and wild life are very happy.
I love the green colors and the space.
There is something about space that feels like freedom to me. It provides a more clear vision and the ability for me to see at great length.
Sometimes, often really….I find myself needing space from others. I used to feel guilty about this. But today I do not.
Today I understand that space is something that my unique individual self needs to feel ok. It is perfectly ok if others do not understand it, because it is not for them it is for me.
It has really nothing to do with them.
I am getting to learn what I need to be comfortable in my own skin. This is important because in active addiction I did not know what I needed or who I was.
Recovery has provided me with the freedom and space to figure things out. It has provided me with the awareness of what is needed for me.
There is also a space within…this is my favorite space. But when I am caught up in life with this and that, the noise can cloud it for a bit.
I return to that space within, replenish and then go play with the others.
