Duration: 15 minutes
Location: shopping plaza parking lot curb, under tree
Today’s meditation was tough. I couldn’t focus because I was distracted. Distracted by the fitness orientation I needed to set up with my aunt on either Monday or Tuesday. I wanted to get closer to GOD too. I said a prayer for him to come closer and for Priya and I to find peace not only within ourselves, but with each other. Not in a way that says we live in turmoil on a regular basis, but in a way to work ourselves through the emotional strife of the moment into a place of serenity. I needed to get in touch with him so I could better be in tune with myself as well.
In a way I felt like today’s session wasn’t about getting in tune with myself though because I was already very aware of what I needed to do to move forward and how to go about it. My focus was there and I needed to start re-reading my NASM book to gain a deeper understanding on the body. I’m forgetting details and I can see it during my fitness orientations. My clients don’t notice, but I do and that little detail can be the difference between a sale and no sale.
I think today’s session was more about pushing through when I find ways to not do something by doing things less important than what’s on the top of my priority list. The fifteen minutes was long and I even opened my eyes frustrated 7 minutes into it. Frustrated that I wasn’t delving deep enough in such a quick fashion like I had been doing over the last week. Today was different. It was hard for the first time. My patience had warn thin. I had things to do and I didn’t want to take the time for it. I think holding to this even when I didn’t want to was an action that helped me improve on my follow through. This in and of itself is a victory.
