Meditation: Headspace, Alone Time Length: 5 minutes Where: Office/Guest Room, Los Angeles How It Felt: Short!
It was so hard to put Steve on that plane today. We just wanted so much more time. We are both crazy busy, but it’s nice to be busy together.
Don’t get me wrong- I love my alone time. I just didn’t feel ready for it yet.
Some days in a long-distance relationship are just like this. Sometimes it’s easy and sometimes it’s really hard.
I chose the “Alone Time” meditation to try to get into the mindset of enjoying the quiet. Because I’m super tired and a little cranky today, I chose five minutes, thinking that would be perfect. Short and sweet. You know what I never seem to learn?
I almost always want the longer meditation!
How many times have I written that? “I should have chosen the longer one, looking back….” I don’t think I’ve ever written, “I wish I’d gone with a shorter session!” I never remember this in the moment, though. Honestly, sometimes it’s hard to think past, “let me get this done and get on to the next thing quickly.”
Someday, I’ll remember.
