Many people live habitually as if the present moment were an obstacle that they need to overcome in order to get to the next moment.
I finally finished 10% Happier. The third time was a charm, and I ended up finding some value in Harris' journey to find more peace of mind. I am intrigued to learn more about meditation from more credible practicers...more practiced pratitioners if you will. Today was only day two for me. I was looking forward to starting my day and week sitting, but I had an even more difficult time keeping my thoughts from roaming than the first time. Five minutes felt like two though so I am hopeful that this is something that I can incorporate with great benefit into my daily routine. Being present...living mindfully is of utmost importance to me even as I struggle to do so continuously, and I have hope that meditation will be an outlet to help me better be. here. now.
