On My Mind Monday

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 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.
