I’ve been thinking…
I don’t meditate nearly enough. And therefore, I have resolved to take my meditation practice, or lack there of, more seriously. Although I like the way I feel after meditating, my practice is quite sporadic. When things get bad, and I mean really bad, that is when I meditate.
And with everything I’ve been going through, I need to find a better outlet for my frustrations. I also need to find a way to deal with my depression as it can be quite debilitating. Some days I don’t want to get out of bed. Other days I’d prefer not exist.
Besides, meditation has so much to offer, so why not benefit from it all. I’m at a point where I don’t want to be unhappy with my life anymore and I want to be okay with my past. More importantly, I want to be excited about my future.
In order to do that though, I need to get my depression in check. I need to find a way to reconnect with the things I like… about myself and life.
Therefore, my journey of rediscovery starts with developing a consistent meditation practice.
So for the next 30 days I will meditate every day for 20 minutes. This will not be something that I do once and that’s it. I plan to make meditating a permanent addition to my daily routine.
With all of its great benefits it seemed like the logical first step of my journey.
