Meditation for Beginners
Meditate to quiet your mind, ease your body and soothe your soul.
Do you ever find yourself wondering "how did I end up here?" You look back at the zigs and zags of your life and wonder should I have stepped left when I stepped right? Should I have skipped a few steps (partners, jobs, ideas) entirely? Out of necessity we may find ourselves doing things we didn't plan. Or even losing sight of our hopes and dreams. That's reality.
But right at this moment, we've been given a gift. A gift for a "do-over." An opportunity to create a "new normal." What will yours look like?
Is this you?
I have been in every one of those situations. And I'm still making steps to overcome ingrained thought patterns that lead me in the wrong direction. If I've learned anything in my life, "It's never too late... to turn back, start over, press the reset button." And never say never.
It's never too late to be what you might have been. ~George Eliot
It may be easy to talk about change as a concept somewhere in the future. What's harder is coming up with a plan and making steps toward a change TODAY.
The first step to doing things differently is making room for possibility and opportunity by letting go. Letting go is an incredibly powerful practice.
Maybe the change you need is starting over. Take your dream and make it a reality. As complicated as changing directions in a career or as simple as changing your at home routine.
Or maybe the change you need is less of a beginning and more of an ending. Walking away from the job that drains you. Letting go of the friends who can't seem to stop tearing you down. Moving on from a relationship that is toxic.

As we get ready to step out into our collective new normal, make a vow to yourself. "This time things will be different. I will make time for what matters most to me. And I will take steps to eliminate things that detract from my happiness and well being." It really is that simple.
I'm right there along side of you and I'm looking forward to the possibilities we are creating.
