SO the Taking Up Space version of myself, the imagined future me that I have been working toward doesn’t exist. It’s taken a bunch of surgery, a pandemic, the sudden end of all the ‘activity’ that is ME, the closure of the spaces I was taking up for me to start to learn this.
When I first made a Take Up Space pin it was because these words really resonated with me. It was a promise to myself, a forward motion. I was in the middle of a season where I knew that redundancy from my job was approaching. My youngest child had just started school. My life was changing and so was I.
