I could go into a lot of reasons, with travel, family, holidays, unexpected work responsibilities. But don’t we all really suspect that it’s something else? That I’m not really wanting to spend time with myself?
Eh. Maybe. Or maybe it’s just really a wild and crazy time for me right now. Anyway, I’m not making it everyday day, but I have managed to make my practice much more regular in the attempt to meditate daily. And I’m pretty happy with that (though I’m trying to reset my counter tonight…just ‘cuz I’m stubborn).
I was doing fairly well, until I decided that spending a lot of horizontal time trumped any vertical positions. Sick as a dog, I was (and not the downward facing kind I appreciate so much with yoga). So the clock resets for me. 43 days, beginning tonight, now that I’m on the mat again. Wish me luck.

I’ve been meditating over the past few months, trying to find my way back to regular practice. It’s been a two-steps-forward, one-step-back kind of thing. So far, I’ve had more success at night, but I also feel a pull toward morning meditation. I’ve tend to feel particularly stressed in the a.m. (In my household, we have a code for the stress and short temper that goes with it. When the response to “How are you doing?” is “My insulation is fried,” that means the person needs a some down time, a little low-key entertainment, time spent alone, etc.)
Anyway, I’m ready-
more than ready-to make meditation part of my daily life, a practice that doesn’t get shoved to the margins. I’m hoping to harness the good energy from 43T folks to help me accomplish this goal, as well as to find and adapt others’ practices.
My goal: 43 consecutive meditation. Daily, non-negotiable, necessary to my health and well-being. Please feel free to pass along suggestions and support!
