How Meditation Helped Me Cope with A Breakup

There’s a reason why I haven’t updated this blog in over a month.

If you’ve read the About Meditating Millennial section of this website, you would know that I am engaged to be married. After being together for almost five years, that is no longer the case. My ex-fiancée and I are no longer engaged to be married, and we are no longer together.

Meditation Journey: Revelation

This morning’s meditation session was intense. I have been meditating now for about a month. I got my routine down to 3-4 times a week, usually in the morning before work and on Saturdays when my fiancée is at her job. For every session before todays, my experience has always been different. Sometimes I get a lot out of it, and other times I feel like it’s a waste of my time.

This morning, however, was definitely mind opening.
