Meditation. Hmmmm. . .

Hamster Getting a Workout on Spinning WheelSo I think I have started a habit of meditation! I am not so good that it happens every day, but probably 9 out of 10. Sometimes its done as I go to sleep at night. I started with the Oprah and Deepak 21 day Challenge, but continued on my own with the help of an app called Simply Being by Meditation Oasis.

Have I noticed any changes? I am sorry to report that the only real change I have noticed, is that I seem to want to meditate!

I still have a constant stream of thoughts running through my mind. I still become antsy to get going with my to do’s about 14 1/2 minutes into the meditation, so that the last 30 seconds is an exercise of self control.

I have not found inner peace or my “life purpose”.

It does give me a few minutes of feeling less rushed and more focused. Then I see a clock and realize its almost time to pick someone up and  I’m back on my hamster wheel, running as fast as I can, never really getting anything done.

But still, even a few minutes is nice.
