I failed meditation……..
For sometime now I have been intending to make meditation a part of my every day life. My girlfriend Janelle swears by it, practices daily and had learnt her practice through Danielle at The Mindful Journey . I had heard it was an amazing thing to do for yourself for so many reasons but what resonated with me most was the idea of learning how to settle my mind & to concentrate on one thing at a time ( My mind is always busy, with so many thoughts at once! I find it hard to remember anything unless I write it down, I am sure I am not alone there ! ) .
According to the Huffington Post : “In today’s busy, ever-demanding world, we find ourselves constantly running around, unable to slow down and take care of ourselves. Our incessant busyness can make us run near empty. When we’re so caught up in giving to others, fulfilling obligations, and getting things done, we forget to reflect on our own mental and spiritual well-being. We forget that much of our stress and busyness is self-inflicted.”
So when I stumbled across a – 7 DAY CALM MEDITATION challenge I thought for sure I could do it !! BUT I found it so hard. My mind is continuously running off to different dreams and thoughts and I am constantly having to bring myself back to the practice. I have read this is part of the journey but I honestly thought I could sit and concentrate to a guided mediation for 10 minutes !! Apparently not !! Not to mention by day 3 I was being interrupted by my little people then of course we added a new member to our family ( insert Miki pup ) and I basically forgot all about it. BUT I will not give up !! I am starting the 7 days of CALM again tomorrow ( Tuesday ) and would love to invite you to join me. Sometimes I think it is easier in a group …. will you join me ?? Comment below so we can connect and try to conquer this together. Cass xx
