Taking time to meditate
Things seem daunting and near impossible think of the big picture
The task was to simply sit and be, I found this idea completely confronting.
Sure I have plenty of time without technology or someone to talk to but I would usually be busy doing something like cleaning the house, mowing the lawn or riding my horse.
As a society we have become completely unable to simply sit and be quiet.
We are all guilty; waiting for a plane, a doctor appointment or even at the grocery check-out.
We will stand there with our phones and be entertained.
I could go on and on about the social implications of being so technology driven, but today I want to think more about that idea of being at peace with you.
Being “okay” with who you are and where you’re at right now.
You know sometimes when things seem dauntingly impossible or scary, try to think about the bigger picture. Always remember that challenges are a part of making life beautiful and have the biggest impact in making us stronger and teaching us to be better. Every obstacle is a chance to learn and grow and it never stops. The more connected you can be to your inner being the better you can handle the outward struggle.
When your life seems to be filled with rain or storm clouds now and then, take a step back. (or jump up in this case!)
Try to think that above all this crazy weather there is the big bright sky and its really not that big of a deal.
Next week I will touch on how meditation and mindfulness can combat the biggest reason behind not living your healthiest.
