Meditation: Calm, 7 Days of Happiness: Live in the Now Length: 12 minutes Where: Bedroom, Los Angeles How It Felt: Happy & Joyful
After a very restful and wonderful introvert day yesterday, I’m back at it! I just had an interview for a cool new gig, which went well, and tonight I have what I hope is my final HOA meeting. We have elections tonight and, after a good three year run, this president is retiring her services. I’m ready to move on to bigger things, running for office with my union and possibly getting into local politics shortly.
It’s been a great learning experience, though!
Anyway, after the end of a beautiful, relaxing day, I decided to do some yoga and then wind down in the bedroom before sleep. The meditation was so great- it actually felt like my mind had created some space inside it throughout the day and I could relax. I wasn’t super present for parts of it, I have to admit, but I was so enjoying letting my mind swirl around wherever it wanted that I didn’t try to reel it in too much.
I kind of think of it like a puppy that’s been inside all day. My introvert days and yoga and meditation times often serve best as a chance for my mind to run around and get all its energy out. It’s like a time that I don’t have to focus on anything, and it always feels cleansing.
Now, do I need to work on being more present? Yeah, totally. Don’t we all, right? I’ll continue to do so. But sometimes mental health care is letting whatever needs to happen, happen, and that’s what I did last night!
And it felt soooo good.
Ok, back to being productive here. Big weekend with lots of work coming, and lots to prepare for! Here we go!
