Our everyday life is often filled with responsibilities, planning and performing, oh so busy. That is not bad, there’s beauty in it, but it often makes us overwhelmed, stressed and dull. Little things start to feel like big things. Making dinner and doing the dishes start to feel like a monumental feat. Sleep gets interrupted by a busy mind. Life, after all, is not meant to be just marshmallows and trips to be beach – all of these issues are common for everyone at some point and at some level, so no one is alone in this. We have to honor our experience and not be so hard on ourselves and others – specially because it is a good thing to have hard days and some hard seasons (it sure makes what truly matters more clear to us). Meditation and time to feel what is going on can be a great asset for everyone, anywhere. No yoga pants needed, no sage needs to be burned, no special music, nothing – just the ability to sit with yourself and stay there for a moment. You, your beautiful mind, watching thoughts go by, breath by breath. Such a treat.
