Maybe there shouldn't be a countdown for something that I don't want to end. I'm happy to report that I haven't missed a single day of meditation. The first sit went very quickly (as 10 minutes should) but the following six did slow down a bit. It was hard for me to get comfortable and find my position until about day four, and then it was just there.
Today's sit was a bit difficult, as I had a lot on my mind. I've never had to sit with emotions like I did today, but only hope that it will make me stronger and perhaps help someone else as well.
I am a transplant to the West from central Iowa...loving it so far. In my late twenties I realize that I am truly finding myself now...not sure why it has taken me so long, however, I have enjoyed the journey so far. I am a people person and have appreciated meeting many interesting individuals since my arrival in Missoula. I am an honest, hardworking, creative, adventurous, go getter type of person that just can't sit still for too long. I'm always up for trying something new and look forward to the future, while living in the present and learning from the past.
