Meditation: Calm, 7 Days of Managing Stress: Working with Strong Emotions Length: 14 minutes Where: Bedroom, Los Angeles How It Felt: Long but good Who Joined Me: Steve (until he fell asleep)
Today I woke up motivated and ready to finish this year strong! I’m tired of whining about how hard it is to write this blog every day. I’ve made it this far, and I’m ready to hit my goal!
Last night Steve meditated with me, but from bed. He’s coming from EST and the three hour time difference is brutal some days. Have I mentioned how lucky I feel to have a husband who is willing to travel back and forth every week, braving the time difference, airport headaches, packing, etc, just so we can be together as much as possible? Too much. Too wonderful.
(To be fair, he spends a lot of his travel time in first class or the airport lounge, that little Million Miler of mine, but it’s still a lot to do!)
I sat with my back straight on the floor next to the bed, however, awake and happy to get back to my “Managing Stress” series. I’ve been learning a lot about feeling your emotions and letting them pass through you lately, rather than ignoring them, pretending they don’t exist, ruminating on them, or shoving them down. I always felt I was pretty good at this, but I definitely am finding room for improvement, which is exciting!
I’m obsessed with the idea of getting more and more emotionally and mentally healthy for the rest of my life. I want to be , kind and patient, empowered to set boundaries, without judgement, free of grudges and bitterness, happy and light and joyful. I want to be pure love, and let as little get to me as possible. I want to save my energy for accomplishing things I truly care about.
I’m so excited for 2022!!
