Morning meditation

I used to think meditation meant sitting for long periods of time while miraculously holding nothing in your mind. It was almost painful to attempt and a minute seemed to last an hour. I’m almost a month into my morning meditation routine. At most I sit for 10 minutes, but some days it’s 5 or 6 minutes. I’ve discovered tons of guided meditations on You Tube.

Today I began the Do You Yoga 30 meditation challenge. It’s 30 days of short guided meditations that are emailed daily. If you’ve ever wanted to give meditation a try this might be a great place to start.

This is what I saw when I opened my eyes after my 10 minute meditation this morning.

I’m currently in South Beach for my sister’s wedding. It was a beautiful wedding.

This morning I also enjoyed a scenic 6 mile run along the coast.

This will all feel like a dream when I return home to the stark white reality that it’s still winter. That is if we make it home. I hear there’s another storm on its way. I suppose there are much worse places I could be stuck for a day.
