Calm, something I rarely feel if I’m honest. Most of the time I find myself lost in emotions; depression, anxiety, or, as is the case at the moment, a mix of everything.
However, this prompt comes at an interesting time for me because I have recently (very recently) started meditating. In an effort to reconnect with my spirituality, and myself, I am giving meditation another go. I’ve tried it before but just couldn’t quiet my mind, I couldn’t let the thoughts that came in go again, I struggled to sit for just a few minutes and be calm. But for several days now I have sat in my bedroom for 5 minutes just breathing. Focusing on my breath. And, until last night, I had managed those 5 minutes without the “is it time yet?” thought creeping in, and I think that last night it was just the constant yawning that was distracting me.
I have actually found myself quite enjoying those moments. Time to just be, to not think, to not process what’s going on, to just breathe and be at peace with myself, with the world.
I am really hoping that this is the start of a wonderful, spiritual journey where I find my soul awakens.
Have you tried meditation? What did you think of it?
