You deserve to take up space in the world. A lesson in self-love & self-care.

 You Deserve to Take Up Space in the World

 I was doing my weekly shop and quite frankly on autopilot, when it came time for me to actually drive out of the centre.

I systematically got my parking ticket out and was about to just put it into the machine when I noticed a sticker placed so aptly below the ticket slot.

You deserve to take up space in the world. Athena Laz's Tweet That

Soak that in for a minute.

It stopped me in my tracks.

Not only did it shift me back into the present , leaving auto mode behind, it filled me with a sense of awe.

 Someone took out the time to think & print out these stickers to remind others of their value.

 I drove home in a contemplative state.

Do I feel like I deserve to take up space?

What does space even mean to me?

The answers came.

For me, taking up space is linked to feeling of worthy.

When you feel worthy you take up space because you feel deserving of it.

 Not in a brutish, obstructive way but in a way of least resistance.

A fluid sense of being…

That this experience on planet earth is a wild ride & that because you are here you (and for that simple reason alone),

YOU DESERVE to take up space.

[ You can watch my video interview with Danielle LaPorte, on why self-compassion is the greatest self- help- i.e. taking up space = self-compassion ]

I take up space most of the time & I feel okay about it.

When I don’t it’s because a fear based thought has taken  hold of me and I end up trying to diminish myself in an attempt to protect myself.

Taking up space also means recognize the spaces which could be better for you. That could be a

head space
heart space
house space
work space
body space

P.P.S. On the off chance (synchronicity and all) that you are the person who created this sticker , THANK-YOU. It was the heartfelt nudge that I needed!
