A report on my spaciousness project

For years, I've created an overarching intention for the new 12 months as I move closer to how I want to be in my life. 2017 has been the year of spaciousness and peace of mind, and oh, what a difference having those filters on my choices and decisions has made.

I've mostly used the spaciousness filter on my schedule and my to-do list. I've lowered my expectations as to what I can get done in a day or a week. I've shifted to seeing my task list as possibilities rather than expectations. I do what I can with a big margin in between for moving around, stretching, taking care of little odds and ends, connecting with friends and family, resting and reading.

The peace of mind filter has trained me to pause before making decisions. Will eating this increase my peace of mind? Will accepting this invitation mean an experience that will be peaceful and satisfying? What will happen to my peace of mind if I take on one more paid project this week? Is there good space for it or am I wanting to say yes out of scarcity, which never leads to peace of mind?

I plan to continue to practice these filters into 2018 as they are a huge gift in my life.

What might a spaciousness/peace of mind filter do for you?
