Time and place

There is a time and place for everything. And doing the things we do at the right time and the right place keeps our lives orderly and structured. It allows us to be productive, focussed and to not permit ourselves to be waylaid by any distractions that may come up.

As long as we stay in the same, friendly and comfortable space and keep to our familiar schedule ~ everything is fine!
In a sense it is our comfort-zone.

It is also the way we set ourselves up for unwavering routines, and a way of life in which we don’t have to look at anything but our familiar surroundings, our known routines, and our required productivity. Without a whole lot of space, time, or even interest for new ideas, and imaginative adventures.

As long as we stick to our known space and time, chances are we keep doing the things we have always been doing in the same way we have always done them.

Therefore it is a good idea to every once in a while find a way to do something new; something different.
Whether it is going to a new place, do something creative or experimental, or taking time to ~ even when things are busy or chaotic ~ to step back from it all, taking a deep breath ad smell the proverbial roses; getting ourselves out of the way things are and the structure of the things we do helps us to create a space in which we can renew ourselves.

And it doesn’t really matter if that is about a concentrated effort to rejuvenate ourselves, or to reinvent our lives ~ or to find a quiet moment to just be still and enjoy… Whichever we choose it to be, chances are it will help us gain new perspectives; and in some cases it may even give us a ‘new lease on life’.

In other words, it is important to make a conscious choice to, every once in a while, leave our comfort-zone in favor of something unexpected, something ‘far out’, something creative. Doing that will likely keep us happier and healthier than when we stay in our familiar routines…

There is a time and place for everything; and that should probably include a time to find ourselves a new place to be ~ if only for a couple of hours or days ~ to give ourselves an opportunity to regain our footing, renew our perspectives, and create a space in our lives for unknown adventures.
