day 15

it’s october. this is both lovely and frightening! i love fall and life in the bay area this time of year. fall really may be my favorite season. i knew it had been a few days since i last posted but it has been much longer than i expected. the weekends prove to be a more challenging time to update my blog but the weekend has also brought more flexibility to my practice.

today is day 21 and i haven’t done my meditation yet. so i will only be updating until day 20. i am so proud of my continued dedication to my meditation practice and each day has brought new challenges and gifts.

“be with what is” has been a theme of sorts through my restlessness, fidgeting and when my mind is refusing to quiet quickly. there have been many days that i spend much of my practice following thought, after thought or focusing on meditating. when i saw i could  just notice, and breathe my practice has felt much deeper.

seriously though, whatever happens at each sitting, i find myself with a much quieter mind afterwards.

are you interested in starting a meditation practice? next post i will be sharing some info about how to start your own meditation practice. please feel free to leave any comments if you are interested in asking specific questions!

    Love that you did a 40 day meditation challenge. I definitely would like to do more of this but have a hard time making the space for it in my life.
