My ebook is finally ready to be published!
My last blog post was two weeks ago, in which I challenged myself to start meditating again. Since then, I have meditated twice. Which is more times than I meditated in the months prior. Additionally, I am practicing mindfulness more often. I am making progress. Little baby steps. But it’s still progress.
Here are the changes I’ve noticed since I re-started my Meditation Journey:
As the number of blog posts has gone down in the last several months, so have the number of times I have meditated.
To reiterate the About Meditating Millennial section, I created this blog to hold myself accountable—to motivate myself to start meditating, and to keep meditating. However, I recently lost sight of that mission statement.
It has been nearly a year since I began this meditation journey. My life has definitely changed in the past year, some of it due to meditation, and in other ways in spite of it.
Growing up, I was a sports fanatic. I emphasize the word fanatic. As a life-long California Bay Area resident, I’ve always been a fan of the Golden State Warriors (yes, even before they won their NBA championship a couple years ago). I owned their merchandise and I would attend a few games each year. In fact, I was such a fan, that a few years ago, I even got the same exact tattoo as one of my favorite players. Yes, you heard that right. The same exact tattoo, in the same exact body part. Oh man, how I would slap myself if I could go back in time when that idea initially came into my head.
Nowadays, it doesn’t take much for me to sit and meditate. Once I decide I want to, I go and do it. It wasn’t always like that. When I first started meditating, it took a lot for me to decide on a time and actually follow through with it. Being able to sit for more than just a few minutes at a time was another problem I faced.
Today, for the first time, I meditated in the rain.
