The Space Between

Life is filled with highs and lows.  Those moments when we’re anticipating the next wonderful thing to come around the corner.  A new relationship, new job, or a concert with that entertainer we’ve always enjoyed, maybe toying with the idea of buying that new car.  I’m not even going to speculate on the lows, we all know what they are.

Lately I’ve been trying to live a conscious life in The Space Between the highs and lows.  Paying attention to the small, everyday occurrences that keep my life moving forward.  Things like preparing and enjoying a meal and cleaning up the kitchen afterward, making the bed in the morning, choosing clothes and makeup that reflect more of who I am rather than who I want people to think I am.  Putting the TV program on hold for five or ten minutes when the littlebrowndog jumps on my lap and wants my attention, cleaning when I see something needs to be cleaned, rather adhering to a schedule.

In the past I’ve pretty much moved through The Space Between on autopilot.  Did what needed to be done, and, like a robot, never feeling the warm dish water, the softness of the blankets, the warmth of the littlebrowndog’s fur, the delicious smell of onions cooking, the outdoorsy smell of laundry right out of the dryer or off the clothesline, the sweet herbal smell of chamomile tea, paying attention to the feelings that bubble up while listening to music on the radio rather than simply allowing the music to become the background soundtrack of my life.

I’m finding that paying more attention to The Space Between enriches my life, assures me all is well and worthwhile.  If you don’t spend much time in The Space Between, try it, you may enjoy it.
