Thank You Thursday: Boundaries

Be thankful this for boundaries.

When you think of boundaries, most think of a form of confinement or containment. With boundaries, comes rules and respect for another's space. Not many people respect other's boundaries or personal space. With the lack of respect, we tend to get upset. Then you have to think why are we upset if the boundaries have not been clearly defined. Of course at work and home, those are easy to define and respect, but personal space it's different and it changes. It changes with our life condition in the moment.

What I mean by this is if you are single and dating, married or have friends of plenty, you may want the company of a certain person one day and other days may desire a company of another. Not by any means condoning cheating if you are married or exclusively dating. It doesn't necessarily have to be a person on an intimate level, could simple enjoy that one's presence. Now that's clear let's proceed. The person or persons allowed in the personal space is by invitation only, conscious or unconscious. The boundaries are not defined because of the energy given and received; hence the reasoning for being around different people at different times and sometimes desire to be around certain people all the time.

When the boundaries are clearly defined by you then the space around you can be controlled. Boundaries of our personal space at times can be treated like an early warning system, linked to our intuition. For example you are in a crowed room having a good time, then suddenly your mood changes. This could be a sign to leave. There could be many reasons why your mood changed, many reasons to leave or simply follow your intuition. The personal space that is your boundary often grows and shrinks. It grows during prayer or meditation. The reason being is that you want no one around you during these special times unless you allow it. The same is true when the space shrinks, when you invite others to enjoy the space you created. Remember you can create any space at any time, conscious or unconscious.

Be thankful this day and everyday for the personal space we create to keep us safe and to grow.

Be thankful this day and everyday for the personal space that goes where you go.

Be thankful this day and everyday for the personal space to allow us to be who we truly are.
