Meditation: Calm, 7 Days of Calming Anxiety: Nature of Change
Length: 12 minutes
Where: Office/Guest Room, Los Angeles
How It Felt: Really peaceful

I am writing this blog the next day, a very busy day, on about three hours of sleep. This will not be a “deep” or thoughtful entry. Not at all.

Here are my two big takeaways from yesterday’s meditation:

  1. Embracing impermanence seems to be a very key part of a happy life. Randomly, before I meditated yesterday, I had a conversation on that very topic with one of my besties. Seems like the universe is pointing me to something here.
  2. Doing yoga before I meditate just makes the whole experience so much better. It prevents a lot of discomfort and allows me to (generally) focus on the actual meditation. My mind and body are both more ready to receive, if you will.

Here’s another big aha: if you work out a ton and don’t sleep, your body is very achy and you are very, very tired.

Here’s a positive for you: Steve will land at LAX in just a few hours! He generally adapts to my schedule more when he’s here, which is hard for him with work, so at least one happy side effect is that I’ll be sleepy earlier and can meet him more than halfway.

Plus, even better, we will be lounging on a beach in Mexico all next week and sleeping all we want. We’ve been known to do two naps a day on vacation sometimes.

We are that good at relaxing.

What can I say? It’s a gift.

I have nothing else… I got my brows done today and they look bomb. I’m so happy we are getting back to “normal” life (like my life has ever been normal- ha!) and to shed my Pandemic Troll look once and for all!

Celebrate everything, right? Why not. Life is crazy. Find every reason to be thrilled.
