Meditation – Day 9
Perseverance! Today, being Saturday, my habits change from work days. So, I found it a little more difficult to maintain my decision of daily meditation. But, I forced myself into it and it was quite pleasant.
I did it earlier in the day so I think the change made it more difficult.
We really are creatures of habit!
But I am on this journey to change my life completely and I feel this challenge is only the first. I hope these challenges will help me change my habits one day at a time and allow me to live the life of my dreams.
Have you ever challenged yourself?
Maybe you haven’t done it for a while.
I am finding it quite liberating. Each day I feel more certain of what I want in life and that I want it so bad that I am willing to do what it takes to get there.
Coming back to today’s meditation 🙂 I decided to lay down on my bed as I listened to Day 4 of 7 Days of Calm from the app Calm.
It felt good to close my eyes and focus on my breath. I must have dozed off and didn’t listen to half the practice, but it felt good just to unwind.
The warm female voice talked about pulling out of autopilot which is where I am most of the day and doing things while being aware of them.
Everyone has a story of getting in the car to drive to work or school and not remembering making the trip to get there and suddenly they arrived.
That’s because we drive on autopilot, specially when we are familiar with the road ahead of us.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing because in case of an emergency our instincts kick in but we don’t enjoy the ride: the warm wind on our faces, the soft sounds of birds chirping, the spectacular view outside or even the company of people riding in the car with us.
And like this there are many more situations where we live our life like this.
Think about it, we are not fully there!
Have you had an experience of getting somewhere not knowing how you got there?
