delete this after reading (v2)
I wrote version 1 of 'delete this after reading' on my old Substack.
And I want to bring the concept back today, in week 52 of 2021.
In v1, you'll see an experimental list of how one could interact with the newsletter. Now, this newsletter here, I haven't added public comments because well, I'd need to jump up to the next pay tier and I'm not ready for that just yet.
All other listed interactions are possible, though!
Today, highlighting these two:
delete the unread or semi-read posts that are collecting dust so that there is more mental and literal space in your inbox to receive new posts
unsubscribe because you’ve realized you never read it and realize that your name on their list doesn’t mean much at all if each and every post goes unread
I've been playing with what my 2022 venn diagram could hold.
(Here's my 2021 one)
The word 'spacious' has been rolling around due something David Allen said.
In her latest book, Dorie Clark writes:
Years ago, I got to know David Allen, author of the famed productivity guide Getting Things Done. When I interviewed him for my book Stand Out, he shared an interesting insight. "You don't need time to have a good idea," he told me. "You need space. And you can't think appropriately if you don't have space in your head. It takes zero time to have an innovative idea or to make a decision, but if you don't have psychic space, those things are not necessarily impossible, but they're suboptimal."
Something I want for you so much more than reading my words here is that you feel spacious in your mind, body, and whole being.
That feeling of abundant expansiveness... gosh, I want that for you and me – for all of us.
Deliciously abundant spaciousness, I believe, not only gives way to innovative ideas and decision making abilities, but also to more fully seeing the beings who here, right in front of us. Spaciousness to discern where and with whom you want your attention to rest.
So, delete this right after reading.
Unsubscribe if it's not jiving anymore.
Make space in your digital homebase.
Shake your body. Light a candle. Look out the window. Dance in some rain. Roll in the snow, if that's an option for you like it is for me right now. Go fill your lungs with outside air. Hug yourself.
Make space in your sensorial homebase.
I'll be here if and when you want to continue cocreating space together.
Til next year 😉,
