Guided meditation on patience.
Letting go of how we think things should be.
Letting go of when we think things should be.
Allowing things to be exactly as they are.
Cultivate patience in the breath to cultivate patience in the mind.
This meditation was a series of inhaling for three seconds, holding, and then exhaling for three seconds, holding. Repeat.
I wanted to do this throughout the day. It’s funny how soon I can forget something I set out to do. I completely forgot about this and it didn’t even cross my mind once.
Couldn’t make my walk during lunch. The workout program I use stopped working on the PS3, so if I wanted to exercise, I needed to walk outside. I felt a little resistance today, but I went out and did it. I even got some motivation to run, but when I started jogging, I almost twisted my ankle. For some reason, I found this really hilarious (trying too hard) and was basically laughing to myself for the rest of the almost two mile walk.
I really need to carve out set time to do this because unlike exercising, it’s easy to miss if I don’t fulfill this commitment. Maybe when I first get to the office or as soon as I get home. I just have so many things I’m trying to do before I leave home for work and when I get back that I easily miss it. Maybe I’ll just set an alarm for the middle of the day and I can pause and put some words down. I think the thing is, I like to have uninterrupted time to write so I can really get into it…but if it’s not happening at all, then anything will have to do.
Do not go out to drink.
