#RealHappiness Day 5

What a powerful lesson #SharonSalzberg has for us today – “finding that magic moment when we realize we’ve been distracted”.  What a great reframe!  How many times have I felt like I was doing something wrong because I got distracted?  Or I felt like I wasn’t making any progress?  Now I have a new tool in my meditation bag that can help me have a new perspective on an ordinary event – being distracted.  Am I the first person who has meditated and gotten distracted?  No.  Will it happen to me again?  Most certainly. Did I fail at meditating?  No!  I found the magic moment.  I recognized I was distracted, and I began again.
