Who is doing the meditation challenge? I am interested in feedback.
Mitch and I are on schedule with it. The first day was ok. Yesterday, the second day, didn’t do much for me and the mantra was WAAAAAAAAAAAAY too hard to remember, making mediation more of a challenge than a time to relax. Ironically, Roxy cat is having a hard time settling in this time, too. Not sure if it’s the background music or that it just takes days of repetition. She usually LOVES meditation time and almost always ends up in a true savasana pose, but not yet this time around.
All that hat said, we are happy to be back to taking the time to just SIT each morning, and today was so much better. If you haven’t joined in yet, you can still get it from the beginning. If you scroll back a few days you can find the link on here, or just google 21 day meditation challenge. Just like there is no such thing as a bad day at the beach, there are no bad meditations. I look forward to watching these 3 weeks unfold and come together.
In keeping with my trying to have new experiences every day (such a hard challenge but so far so good) I held not one but 2 little babies yesterday, Sienna and Kale, each just a few months old. They were both delicious and holding them was very joyful! I am sure way back when the boys were young there were days when I held more than one, but that is a lifetime ago, so this counts as new!
After the terrible tragedy in Brussels yesterday, I found it quite ironic that just by coincidence, today, I put in a cd to cool down to at the gym and hit the button and the song was What the World Needs Now–(is love sweet love) NO, not just for SOME but for EVERYONE….Certainly I feel this is very true. All my healing energy goes out to all those that are suffering physically or lost loved ones in this senseless bombing. While we all agree these extremists are incredibly dangerous and need to be stopped, I am not sure anyone short of Superman has the power. Personally, I refuse to be terrified. If I am, haven’t they won?
Instead I will continue to work on living each day to it’s fullest. Hoping wherever you are, you are doing the same. Much love…….
