Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.
Last year Brandon and I decided to challenge ourselves by adopting one habit for a month. Every month it was something different. For example, one month we gave up meat. Another month we had at least one salad a day. I tried to give up nail biting for a month, but to no avail. So, this year I am continuing with this challenge. In January I decided to journal every day. I skipped 3 days the whole month. It felt so good to get up each morning and journal about my dreams, what I was thinking about upon waking or what I was going to do that day. My only rule was I had to journal for at least one page.
In February I committed to being more conscious of the food I eat (hence the nifty meal planning magnets I made!) So far I’ve been pretty good on that front. I’ll continue to post my progress here.
I know that I am ahead of schedule, but I am already thinking about what I want to do in March. I’m thinking about doing something that is good for my spirit since the first two months of the year have been good for my mind and body.
So since January was Journal month, February is Food month, I though March could be Meditation month. (Notice the alliteration!)
When I was preggo I meditated times a day for 15 minutes or more each time. This practice really helped me when I was in labor. Maybe it helped a little too much since Grace graced us with her presence VERY quickly. Since she has been here though I have sort of lost touch with my meditation practice. I tried to meditate today and it was so hard! So, I thought that I would use you guys to keep me accountable. Also, Aunt Betsy (Brandon’s aunt- mine too!!!) is taking a meditation class and she inspired me to start meditating again. Hi Betsy! Thanks!
So… long story short, I want to create some guided meditations for you to do with me. Now, I won’t post them every day, but maybe every Monday. Meditation Mondays in March 🙂 Can I get an MMMMMMM HMMMMMMM?!
So, please get ready to experience some joy.
Close your eyes and press play. Press play and gently close your eyes as you breath deeply and listen.
This is my first attempt. Now, bear with me. I know it’s not great quality or fleshed out very well. They will get better I promise. I’d love your feed back on what kind of guided meditations you would like to explore.
