“Remember then: there is only one time that is important – Now! It is the most important time because it is the only time where we have any power.” Leo Tolstoy
I love starting new ventures. There is so much hope in the fresh, never tried. The day-to-day maintenance is much harder for me. This applies to writing, organizing and my latest venture—meditation.
I started meditating a few months ago. Organizing, planning, list making and that I’ve got to do focus took over every waking hour (and some sleeping ones too) encroaching on the part of my brain that needs quiet reflection in order to write.
A friend suggested meditation and I jumped at this glittering new promise for relief from my over-extended, hyperactive, obsessive-compulsive nature.
Most days I’m not sure I’m doing this mindfulness stuff right. But Andy at Headspace (the application I’m using) tells me this is normal. The mind is difficult to train.
