FOCUS on what you do today. Make each moment meditation in motion: washing dishes, getting dressed, driving, brushing your teeth, even eating. By employing constant meditation, you will come to see that everything is divine.
I am meditation in motion today.
Bonus: Deepak Chopra gives Lilly Singh a mantra to focus on during meditation.
Celebrate your accomplishments today. You have achieved more than you realize. Stop being so hard on yourself! If you have made others laugh, comforted someone, or dried tears, then you have contributed to the human race.
Take time to pat yourself on the back today. Life is not the money in your bank account. Life is about how you make other people feel about themselves.
Kindness begins at home. Be careful not to rush into healing the world before you heal yourself. That will create imbalance within your world and leads to resentment within.
It’s taken me a long time to understand this message. Learning how to slow down, not fill my days with extra “stuff to do” (even though I always have stuff to do), and turning off the TV (see my most recent Year of Living Without post), are slowly teaching me to be kind to myself.
