And Begin Again

January 20 25already. When I sat down and seriously wrote my goals a few weeks ago I thought I’d have good progress by now. But in truth, not so much.

I’m struggling with getting back on my eating program. There’s the option to purchase the videos again, and I think that’s what I’ll have to do. They’re expensive, but damn it, I need someone to nag me. That’s why I pay a trainer at the gym when I have everything I need right in our basement!

My daily meditations aren’t daily. My plan was to do them every morning, early (I do get up at 5 am!) yet I’m still wasting time on the computer.

My lack of compliance with my eating and meditation program both have one thing in common, and of course it’s me! Me not walking away from a computer, TV or sewing machine to stop for 20 minutes and do things that will positively impact my life.

The one thing I’ve learned from the 10% Happier meditation app I’m using is this … when you go off course, or when your mind wanders, just stop, refocus, and Begin Again. (The primary meditation guide says this constantly so it’s becoming a mantra.) Today, today, today, I will Begin Again. Right now. Going to do a meditation.
