Years ago, a relationship coach told a friend to free up some space in their wardrobe, allowing space for a partner in their lives. I thought it was an interesting concept at the time.

Over the years, I know it makes sense. When your life is packed full, be it of appointments, friends, family work, stuff in the home, you have enough on your plate and it’s hard to welcome new things into your life. There’s no space otherwise.

For a while now, we’ve had two desks in our office. One is a desk that can be used as a standing desk and the other is a nice glass table. Both my husband and I found ourselves using the first desk as it’s more comfortable. It’s large, there’s a carpet underneath it and it’s comfortable to use as we can adjust the height.

The other one unfortunately became a “dumping ground”. He recently suggested that we move the second desk to the side. By doing so, there was suddenly more space in the room and I could move our primary desk into the centre of the room.

Now this desk is where I do most of my work and I associate my business with it. I felt that we were symbolically giving it more room and more space. It felt good and right to do so.

Now it’s your turn. Where in your life could you symbolically give more space?
