gratitude-a-thon day 510: same thing, new package


thOnce again, I am attempting to get meditation to be a natural part of my life. And while in the past, I have tried to gently invite it in, forcefully make it mine, coax it in with a promise of treats & snacks, I am taking a brand new tact with it this time around.

Instead of looking at the long haul of a new habit, I’m borrowing from the 12-step programs, and just telling myself that I am going to do it today. All I have to think about is making the choice to meditate today.


Are you laughing? Does that sound basic and non-revolutionary? Well, it is pretty simple, but I think it’s a very non-threatening way of making this, my 1,383,469th attempt at daily meditation, a habit. Ok, then, let’s see how this goes down. As Beckett says, “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” Yup.
