Now that I have your attention …ahem.
I was always resistant to mediation… let me re-phrase….
I was always resistant to s-l-o-w-i-n-g down. I’ve realized now- especially in the last year that my wisdom comes from the quiet moments I allow myself in mediation- even if it IS still difficult for me to slow down…
If even just for 15 minutes- finding the quiet can shift my entire day from hectic to peaceful, harried to intentional, chaotic to calm. It grounds me, gets my “head” in the right place, and relaxes my body – getting myself INTO my own body….
In order to really “give” yourself to others, you have to first create the “space” for yourself….
Give yourself good head…space…. first.
