Day 8 - #365MeditationChallenge

It's the start of a new week!  As I move into this next week, it will be interesting to move through this meditation challenge as I start back to work full time.   

We have enjoyed some serious "down time" over the holiday season - we went to Phoenix and Palm Springs over Christmas and relaxed in the desert sun.  We hiked, slept late, soaked in the hot tub and I read my third fiction book of the year (out of about 50-60 nonfiction ones!). 

It was just the rest that we needed and I do feel ready to get back into the flow of things. 

With that being said, there is a certain level of anxiety that seems to creep in when I think about all that I have to do and the pace that my "regular" life demands.  I was saying to a colleague this past week, "I look at all that I do and keep up with and now that I briefly stepped away from it, I'm not actually sure how I'm doing all of that!"  It can feel a bit daunting. 

And THAT is why I need this Challenge.  That is why meditation is such a crucial piece of the puzzle.  It is why it is at the top of my priority list for 2017.   

Wish me luck!
