This week, I’m feeling like my days have turned to night very quickly, and meditation has become part of my nightly routine. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it’s just different from what I had envisioned when I started my 30 Days of Mediation. This is what this week has looked like. | Day 16 I didn’t get 15 full minutes in, but I did stop for several long moments under this sky. #illtakeit | Day 17 #om #meditation #selfie | Day 18 Hello Bed. Welcome to my daily meditation practice. | Day 19 “Thinking you are unable to meditate is a little like thinking you are unable to breathe, or to concentrate, or relax.” -Jon Kabat-Zinn #thereshope | Day 20 Tonight there are candles. #alliscalm | Day 21 Palms, mind, and heart open. | Day 22 Yurbuds + a guided #meditation = quiet peace.
Remember you can follow along all week long on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
What have you been up to this week?
The Days of this week I’ve been swimming, beaching, relaxing, celebrating, rainbow spotting, and looking for solace in my back yard. | Day 16 Pool-TASTIC morning here. Happy Father’s Day to all the daddies out there!! | Day 17 Sitting at Starbucks, and I might be facing a busy street, but I’m still working outside. #cantbeatthat | Day 18 We had a brutal #thunderstorm last night. I love the delicate reminders that remain the next morning. | Day 19 Laying in the grass to escape the crazy inside. #muchneededbreak | Day 20 Out and about on Broad Street, downtown Charleston. | Day 21 Relaxing on the hotel balcony. #HappyAnniversary to me and mine. | Day 22 Walk on the pier and a day at the beach. #vacation
And I saw two (two!) separate rainbows outside on Day 21, which was also my 10th anniversary. Of course my husband and I are taking them as a sign that nature was celebrating too. The rainbow, natures bunting.
What have you been up to outside?
The Days have been full of everything that makes summer wonderful. | Day 9 Awesome morning outside catching grasshoppers with @annehatton at Brookgreen Gardens. | Day 10 Working outside today. This oak is my desk chair. | Day 11 Some days, I wish I were a bird. Today is one if those days. | Day 12 Fountain play for Max while I enjoy the sunshine on Day 12. | Day 13 Afternoon walk on this hazy, humid day. | Day 14 Friday evening cocktails in the backyard. | Day 15 Barefoot picnic on Day 15 with my kiddo combo.
In case you missed it, on Thursday, I was over on Southern Belle Simple answering questions about Folly Beach and all it has to offer. I love that place. Then, on Friday, I played guest blogger on Wendy Nielsen: Writing a New Story. Wendy is a new friend of mine, and I love her, her blog, and her message. She’s such an inspiration! My guest post is all about happiness. (Spoiler alert, it’s kind of a lot of work to get there.) And if you click over there’s a super cute picture of Julia.
