I went to the book store a few days ago looking for something that would speak to me about learning to let shit go. Finding that Zen space (I’m not allowed to have a Zen garden at work, my co worker thinks I’ll throw the rocks at people . . . she’s not wrong) finding a peaceful state of mind . . . all that great stuff. Nothing was looking like the type of book I wanted. I needed something paper, tactile, something I could carry with me and highlight . . . . I have my kindle but deep down I’m always going to be a pen and paper kind of girl.
I was just about to leave when this one title struck me “Buddha walks into a bar” and this first chapter “Get your stuff together” Yup, that’s me right there. A few chapters in and I’m really enjoying it. Who knows, maybe my path is a Buddhist one. I like the idea of finding peace and seeing the positive. Being connected and helping the world along.
I am reading about meditation and how it can change your life. I believe it can, so I’ve decided it’s going to be one of my things I’ll do for 90 days. At least 15 minutes a day. The book suggests meditating with your eyes open to be in the moment, in the now . . . . yeah I can’t do that. Creeps me out when I see people starring at nothing, I can’t be one of those people.
- Push ups. Try to do more each day, never do less.
- Exercise for 45 minutes. Maybe not all at once, but minimum 3 times for 15 minutes
- Yoga. With Jack as often as He wants, bless that kid.
- Be kind to my body by what I put in it and do for it.
That’s it, those are my 5 things. I begin tomorrow . . . . lets see how this goes. I’m actually looking forward to this quite a bit.
I wonder if Buddha would order shots or take the time to sip a nice scotch?
