wednesday I had an enormously busy day so I only got to do 10 minutes of meditation in the morning. I sat on my bed and took a few deep breaths. I then scanned over my body from the top of my head to the tips of my toes and then back up again, relaxing whatever needed to be relaxed along the way. I relaxed into breathing and then noticed whatever thoughts were popping up (and music) – I named them gently and let them be. I was getting in a good groove of this and then realized that I had to get a move on to get to my appts on time. Quite possibly, it was a really successful meditation because it was so short.
I set the intention for mindfulness for the rest of my day. And I was pretty successful. I definitely feel more in my body when I’m mindful (as opposed to feeling in my head with lots of swirling thoughts and TO DO lists, etc.)
Wednesday was a day full of support and friendship. I even ended the day with a 2 hour conversation with an old friend. It was a very nourishing day. I found the familiar desire to cling to such a day in my mind, wanting to hold onto all the conversations and memories because I cherish them so much. I bowed to them and smiled thanking all of the day and went to bed.
