I have been dating an introverted man who I am very in love with for almost 2 years.  Reading your posts have helped me to be more supportive and understanding to him especially during the times when he needs space.  I just wanted to thank you for your weekly posts and let you know how helpful they are for someone who is in a relationship with an introvert.

I finally feel like i can explain what happens within without getting distracted. I’m an Introvert with ADD and it makes it so hard to explain quite what im feeling sometimes. — M.G. on space2live

For the first time in my life I could truly explain, through your words the way in which I experience life and myself. Brenda… It all fell into place. I had found myself and had such a moment of clarity. It felt like such a big weight was lifted off of my shoulders. Finally I felt like it was ok to be me. I was not the only one. I had found people and a little space where I fit in. … I was at work and crying on the inside. Emotions ran wild inside me. I was ecstatic, sad, confused, motivated, i…

I think I want to print out your articles and hand them out as a sort of relationship waiver form. “You want to be my friend?….You are interesting in going out? Here read this first. Sign here to acknowledge that you have read and understand the enclosed material. Thank you.” Seriously. I think it would work. — Guerin Moorman

Your site has saved my sanity and my life. Maybe even my marriage. I work part time and have two young boys at home, my husband is supportive of me but until recently I thought I was going crazy. … Reading your writing not only inspires me to pick up the pen again, but gives me nourishment in the deepest places. I will fight for balance. Everything you write is spot on… And wellness is so incredibly multifaceted.  I was ready to give up hope, but understanding myself through your words is bring…

Your words are my lifeline.  I sit down to your posts and as I read I can feel my acceptance of myself and my needs grow.  Your words validate my feelings about my life, motherhood, relationships and it is something I hold onto.  And during the times when I feel like I am not able to be a mother or a wife or a sister or a friend or whatever someone needs me to be, I go back to your words and find some peace…I send your posts to my husband when I need him to understand that I love him but I need …

About Space 2 Live 2015-10-21T15:37:29+00:00

space to be

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In those choices lie our growth and happiness. -Viktor Frankl

If you’ve ever felt outdone because you weren’t outgoing enough or overwhelmed because you tried to juggle multiple projects like everyone else, then you will feel at home here.  Space2live is for people who process and absorb life deeply. We need space in our world to feel music, hear stories, listen with our whole beings.  But space2live is not limited to introvert readership.  Ideally, this site will generate compassion and empathy for ourselves as well as an understanding and appreciation of all temperaments.

There is a genuine search for meaningful by way of experience with and research into:

  •  Introversion
  • Divorce
  • Sensuality
  • Parenting
  • Self-Actualization

As our world becomes increasingly fast-paced and stimulating, the ability to pay attention and experience the richness of life that comes from reflecting on nature, art, music, and relationships, diminishes.  Space2live is where you will find beauty and value in living introspectively. At space2live the sincerest desires are to support those who feel out of sync with the louder-bigger-faster set and to reveal the gifts found by looking within.

Through relationships, self-awareness and vulnerable yet fearless action, life unfolds.  

Space2live/brendaknowles.com is a combination of celebrating stillness and living vividly.  It’s a place to recreate the freedom of childhood, when we had time to look inside ourselves and the space to revel in the world.

It’s where we intentionally reflect on core passions: art, nature,writing, reading, relationships,family, traveling, self-realization and spirituality.

Feel free to slow down, hideout from overwhelming schedules, and express your innermost thoughts here.  We need quiet and space to recharge, quench curiosity and access creativityWe need it to feel deep satisfaction.

**Three posts to give you the deepest sense of what space2live is about: There’s Nothing Wrong with You.  You’re an Introvert, Soul Painting: Beyond Artistic Talent ,and Pay Attention. Reflect. Be. The Essence of Space2live and a Letter of Love to My Dad.
