So this is a monumental day in many more ways than one. It’s also the closing day of the challenge, a chance to reflect on whatever progress I have made despite not keeping up daily with the challenge. I feel like I really missed out on feeling the energy of all the people in the challenge working together. I know I’m not the only one, and that makes me feel better just because I am in good company. Even Sharon has said in the past that she’s not been able to sit every single day of her life. I have the book, and I know these lessons will be available until the end of April. I hope I will be motivated to go through the lessons I’ve missed. I find it very difficult to commit to a set time to practice. Maybe that’s because I’m still terrified of failing. People like me who’ve lived their lives with ADHD are especially sensitive to things like this.
I’m glad that I managed to make one more post while the challenge is still going on. Even the limited amount of work I did this past month has reinforced the tremendously positive experiences in meditation I’ve been slowly acquiring over the past 4 years or so. The lessons contained in this challenge have helped a great deal in improving my relationship with my husband. Growth in meditation practice mirrors the progress I’ve made in my marriage. It’s all interconnected.
I’d like to learn how to feel proud of myself for the progress I have made so far and my commitment to continue cultivating a meditation practice in a way that I can manage. This is as difficult for me as it is for anyone.
I hope that whoever’s reading this feels like they can relate. As Sharon emphasized in this last lesson, when we work on ourselves we are also benefitting everyone and everything around us.
