Mental note – Joy

Today I intended to complete the practice in the morning. My day started good and I was able to finish working at 8:30 am where some days I don’t finish until around 11 am and others it could be late into the afternoon or evening. However, the day got away or if I’m more honest, I was not as intentional as I could be about completing it early. So today I ended up participating after I had a biological breakdown. What I mean by that is that I had a respiratory episode in the middle of a coaching session where I was a client. I couldn’t breathe and it took me a good 6 or 7 minutes to get myself together. After my session I went outside to get some fresh air to reset my lungs and my mind and came back inside for the meditation. After each day of this challenge I have felt more excited and invigorated by the challenge. I love the feeling of getting a new perspective on my daily practice. Like the topic  today was mental noting. I’m familiar with it and I think that I exercise it often. But today, in my application of it the result was a little different. Instead of in/out, my word was joy. I instantly felt more calm and wasn’t caught up in anything more than the feeling I was feeling, noting it and riding with whatever comes next. Now, I’m not sure if that was the intent and truthfully it doesn’t matter much to me because there is no “wrong” way to meditate in my opinion. The main thing is to just do it and I’m thankful for this challenge to giving me new eyes to see how to do it.
