I’m Making Room
When we were renovating our apartment in Mumbai, we had the freedom to play around with the space in the way we wanted. We received suggestions to expand our sitting room in to a much bigger space. The idea was that we could then accommodate a lot more people when we entertained. However, the fact is that we don’t entertain much – never a large group of people any way, so we saw no use for a larger sitting room.
What did we do with the space instead? We used it to make a large study with lots of shelves for our books – that we have collected separately over the years and many that we have acquired as a couple. Books are something that both of us prize and we were prepared to make space for them.
As I thought about this, I realized how this could be a metaphor for life. If you prize something very much you will make room for it in your life. You will be willing to let go of something else in order to accommodate what you value. If you value someone, you will make sure that you spend time with them. If you value your health, you will make sure you exercise and eat healthy. And so on.If you prize something very much you will make room for it in your life.

What is it that you value and need to make more room for in your life?
