This first official blog post marks one step closer to the With White Space vision turning into a reality. I’d say it marks the ‘start’, but this journey began in an office space nearly a year ago from where I stand today.
Flipping the pages back 365 days, you would find me wearing a lot of hats – some fitting better much than others. On the home front, I’d been juggling motherhood to a busy toddler and living amidst a full home renovation. From a work standpoint, I’d been working, but failing to balance the workload of a photography business and two additional part-time (yet demanding) positions. It was during a shift within one of these positions that I was talking with a co-worker over lunch. The casual chatter made way to talk of busy schedules + feelings of overwhelm. Within this narrative, I commented on my desperation for more white space in my life. I mentally stopped myself in my own tracks and filed this away in my brain as something worth holding onto. Fast-forward 5 minutes later – I found a notepad and quickly scratched down the words that had spilled out of my mouth.
Why? Because if I was feeling the overwhelm + craving this margin, I knew so many other women were feeling the same way. Sitting at their desk lost in thought or venting to coworkers in a windowless break room about how the vision they held for their lives was so far out of sync from the daily lives they were carrying out.
Fast-forward to today and a foundation is busy being built – stone by stone. The foundation for a space and community built for women like us – women who are sitting in overwhelm but can envision and feel something beautiful budding on the horizon.
The mission of With White Space Co. is to guide women as they create a life filled with slow + wholehearted moments – moments in total alignment with their true purpose and vision. To give women the permission they’ve been needing to begin prioritizing their own needs + filling their own cups long before it empties. A slowed pace paired with self-care is the recipe to a life well lived – a life that will come to fruition when we begin carving out the white space and margin we crave.
