I couldn’t have picked a more perfect time to give myself that negative space—moments of emptiness waiting to be filled. This spring has been gorgeous!

I found this delightful fairy grotto in my own front yard.

Fairy Flowers

The lilacs were amazing this year. Their sweet smell surrounded me every time I walked outside.

Spring Lilacs

The first flowers are giving way to irises and peonies, and the trees are now holding my attention most.

The other day, I sat in my front drive while waiting for a tow truck and gave myself a moment of negative space. Instead of checking email or thinking about the day or fretting about why I needed to call a tow truck, I listened to the wind in the trees and watched the sunlight play across the dew-heavy grass. I couldn’t have enjoyed that moment of serenity if I was keeping myself busy every second of every day.

I need to give myself time for What Ifs? and the even more intriguing—What’s Next?
