Just checkin in with you about my meditation challenge and well….I’m embarrassed to say, it ain’t pretty.
I’ve fallen off the meditation wagon and I’ve fallen hard. I can’t even really say why, other than life has gotten in the way. I’ve been working on a new project, sleeping in til the last possible moment and it seems every weekend in the summer is already booked with family and friend get togethers.
But guess what? NONE of these excuses are valid. And I have to keep reminding myself…
Nothing is more important than my well being.
Feeling centered is the basis on which all the “other things in life” are built on. You know what I’ve noticed? I’ve fallen back into quite a few bad habits. It’s funny how easily (and quickly!) they just creep back in. Time to get my shit together!
I’m ready to start anew. I joined a gym in my work building, so absolutely no excuses–it’s an elevator ride away! This will motivate me to eat clean and prep my meals on Sunday. I’ll be tired out and fall asleep earlier from exercising, SO I can wake up before work and meditate. See how that cute lil circle of positivity works?!
Have you also been struggling with some personal goals?
We all fall, we all slip up, we all get down on ourselves, but the beauty is we can all pick ourselves back up and try again. This is what really defines us, right? It’s about how we overcome the challenges in life. If you’ve set goals for yourself that slowly seem to be slipping away, it’s time to refocus. Spend some time reflecting on what is contributing to your failures? If what you’re currently doing isn’t working, then you’ve gotta try something NEW. Shake things up. Even if it’s just one small change, focus on that, do it well and build slowly from there. Check out my post on how to slay your goals using the SMART method.
The main thing is to get your mind right. That’s step number one and the most important. Once you are feeling positive and motivated about your goals, you’ll be ready to do the work. This is powerful because by changing your thoughts, you can then impact your feelings and ultimately, your actions.
