Competing for attention

My busy mind is constantly capturing thoughts and following them, investigating them, proving or disproving them. Piggybacking on those thoughts are others, competing for attention. My mind and body have been begging for calm for as long as I can remember, however, I believed I was incapable. This week I have validated my new belief that I am, in fact, entirely capable of calm.

7 days of meditation in a row is my longest streak despite meditating several times per week for the last year or so. Today I was “late” to this meditation and already had a head full of distraction. It was a challenging practice for me, then, but I am thankful I did it and proud of my will.

I am very much looking forward to next week and beyond. What a gift this challenge has been for me so far. Thank you.
