Notice the spaces in this wall. Some might think it is flawed workmanship. Au contraire. The spaces between the boulders in this protective wall around Tokyo’s Imperial Palace are intentional to withstand earthquake tremors. Frequent occurrences, I understand,
but hopefully not while I’m here!
Let’s apply this concept to our lives. Building space into our daily patterns will strengthen us to withstand unexpected tremors and life quakes.
Being intentional about these breaks will make us more resilient. In the long run, we’ll better protect what’s most important.
When life rocks our foundation, which it inevitably will, we can remain strong and resilient. Stacked too tight, we’ll crumble.
