On this very first day, of this wonderful new year, my plan was to go on a hike up the local mountain with a group of people to watch the sun rise and begin the journey into 2015 on the right foot.
I wondered how I would fit the meditation into my plan. I know it takes me a lot longer than everyone else to make the trip up to the summit and back. Trying to wake up early enough to do it before the hike was…well…out of the question! haha
As it turns out, I didn’t have to make that decision, but am still learning that this ONE resolution is not going to be easy. Life happens. Distractions happen. Tonsillitis happens. So, no hike for me today.
You’d think that staying home with a sore throat would have made it easier to start this meditation thing. However, I slept in and when I got up, Dear Hubby was already happily switching back and forth between marathons of Twilight Zone and Walking Dead. Hmph. Onward to find a different location.
So, I came to the computer room. Found this video about the basics of meditation and later I will add another video to begin the process. Check back if you can. Also, if you have trouble leaving comments or contacting me here, feel free to come to my Facebook page to join the discussion. I’d truly love to hear from you!
