Often we get caught up in our minds or swept away by our emotions. We can feel unsteady, disconnected or overwhelmed. This is a simple practice for reconnecting and grounding ourselves in the present moment, so that we can move through our day with a sense of ease and internal balance.

Day 4 on a journey to self love
Yesterday I did something for myself and experienced a successful moment for the first time in what feels like months. Last night was a real low point in my depression. It was triggered when I put myself out there to my so and sought validation that didn't come. This morning I reflected on what it means to enjoy my life in the moment and to take control of all my moments. I pray that I make it through this.

The Moment
I constantly am thinking about what happens next and or what I screwed up before, completely unaware of the current moment and it’s beauty. I sat here, amidst my life’s stress, echoes of the tv from the other room where my wife is, Cat meowing at me, and air conditioner running. In this moment I have everything and do not need a single thing. I just need to find this place again tomorrow...

Distracted
I learned that my stress is much more deeply rooted than I thought, an my distractions are not only in my own mind but all around me.... I need to make more time to peacefully meditate instead of trying to do it just before work even though that is where most of my stress comes from..... I hope today goes by quickly and smooth.

Connection to self
I got overwhelmed at work today, and I think that taking some time to do this while stressed would have made a big difference. I feel good doing it tonight, but closer to the stressor would probably have a different t effect

Return to center
It is easy to forget that we have this moment. It’s easy to look ahead and worry or look behind and feel anxious, but if we can just breathe we will always have this moment, and we can make this moment anything we want if we are able to let ourselves return to our center. To our breath. I have to remember to breathe.

Grounded
Sometimes we need to become grounded in order to function. If we continue to put ourselves in pressure and anxiety filled situations then life’s gonna suck. so if you just remember that u are amazing and can do and that you don’t have to be like anyone else, you’ll survive

Be less stressful
Everytime I feel overwhelmed with all the things I’ve got in my mind all through out my review, I just listen Aura. It seriously releases some of the stress I feel because of all the pressure and anxiety given especially when I have a few more days left to take the board exam. I shall continue now to review thanks aura! 👍👍👍👍👍

Dedication is needed for self awareness
The brain quickly re-learns to run amok, go off on tangents, etc. It is only by sheer mental prowess that the brain undoes all that is good in others.

I need a better posture
While I like meditating in a head to floor prayer position near my phone, it puts distracting pressure in my head, makes it harder to breathe. Guess I’ll have to sit up! Today’s meditation was very good though!

Starting out
Maybe things can’t be resolved like “poof” through meditation. But incremental improvements are things to look toward. Every day will be different, some hard, but that doesn’t mean you’re not on the right path. Today I feel this way. Somber, but hopeful.
