Sep 18- Untethered

Meditation: Calm, 7 Days of Calm: Basics of Mindfulness
Length: 10 minutes
Where: Bedroom, Los Angeles
How It Felt: Like a fresh start
Who Joined Me: Tigre

I’ve been thinking about how there are only a little over three months left of my “meditate and blog daily” experiment, and how I’ll likely only keep one app at the end of this. I was lucky to get a free year of access to each of these (Calm, Headspace, and Balance), but no need to pay for three going forward. At the moment, I’m leaning toward keeping Headspace.

Since that’s the case, I would like to explore the Calm app more before the end of the year. It offers so much! I’m also having a bit of a “new start” moment in my wider life. My pandemic hiding has come to an end, and it’s time to live a bit (vaccinated, masked, and mindful of the safety of the people around me, of course.) As I’ve written, I’m back to work, building that momentum up again. I’ve also done so much great internal work this past year, I want to have space to function as this new, improved, happier, more centered, more confident me.

So, I plan to do the “7 Days of Calm” series, followed by the “21 Days of Calm.” These courses are a deep dive into being present and staying mindful. I also started the book The Untethered Soul, which has already been life-changing. I want to finish this year strong and be my best self. I’m excited to keep going, to keep getting closer and closer to who I really am, stripping away all the bullshit that doesn’t really matter.

Tigre felt like finding inner peace, too, so he crawled into my lap and purred away. Pretty perfect.

Big week coming up- I’m booked on the Dr. Phil show, holding auditions for the play I’m directing, attending a casting director workshop, plus normal work stuff, my own auditions, various plans with friends, and picking up Steve at the airport Tuesday! And I just set some new workout goals, so I’m hoping to get out for a hike or two and break in our new treadmill.

Exciting stuff! Let’s finish this year strong!

What, mom?
