Practicing mindfulness and sitting meditation has changed, and will continue to change, my life in both subtle and dramatic ways. Simply, it’s given me the covetous power to understand how my thoughts create emotional responses within my body which directly impact my thoughts, words and deeds.
I’ve done the hard work of self-healing. I think it’s made me more self-aware and compassionate. I’ve felt, for a long time, that it was my mission to compel others to do the same.
But it’s not and there are very real consequences to telling someone how to live their life. I didn’t get it until a friend of mine told me she had enough of my “advice”.
I’ve started so many businesses and books and failed each one of them. This time, though, I know I won’t quit. My mindset and understanding of starting something that requires a ton of work, has shifted.
