I have so many things going on in my life right now. Some days I feel like I have it all under control then there are the days I fell like I have too much...everything is just too much.
I am on the of those people that has to process things. It is like my brain has a filing cabinet and I have to file it away. This is how I keep my emotions in check. But lately I feel like my filing cabinet is full and I am trying to cram just one more file into it.
It is days like this that I know that I need to meditate. But when do I have time?? I will tell you when I could do it. It would be right before bed. I just need to shut off Netflix (Hello, my name is Ana and I am a Netflix addict) and meditate.
If and when I do meditate, I feel better. It helps my brain shut down for just a little bit so I can handle the things that are weighing me down.
Meditation was something that was not easy for me to learn. It took me almost a year to meditate for 15 minutes. Most of the time I was only able to meditate for maybe a minute or two. But I didn't give up. I will close my eyes and clear my head. And when my thoughts come barging in, I try to clear my head again. Sometimes this process will go on the whole time I meditate but sometimes, I am able to focus and keep my head clear.
How do I clear my head? I imagine being in the one place that I feel the most at ease. The mountains are my happy place. I love the Ozarks so I imagine sitting on top of one of the bluffs and looking over the valleys.
Well, I have taken up enough of your time.
