In his book Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Do Work that Matters, author Jon Acuff shares the thought provoking idea that NYC would combust without Central Park. He parallels our lives with the busyness of NYC and our vacations with Central Park. Yet he comes to the conclusion that we can't wait until vacation to create space to be balanced. We need to have Central Park moments in our daily life.
Let today be a Central Park day.
Give yourself space from the busy to breathe a little and gain clarity for tomorrow. Ponder the idea of what your Central Park moment(s) during a typical day will be for you.
I offer to you as an option each day to take time to...
Pause. Breathe. Pray.
Giving yourself space in your day to let go of the clutter and come back to center and align with love.
Whatever you choose as your Central Park, I hope you take time to visit it each day this week. Give yourself the gift of space to gain perspective and clarity for the rest of your day.
"Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest"
- Matthew 11:28
