Coloring on the Wall

I have found that meditation is as important to my happiness (flourishing) as gratitude! Science even backs me up on this one!  As I started by journey to experience more … of everything … I was skeptical of what research reported meditation would do.  But I was willing to try.  In my journey I have learned that meditation is not at all what I thought it was.  I don’t sit crossed leg on the floor burning incense!  I sit anywhere and anyhow I want. I breathe and focus, and it works!

Because the most important part of meditation is learning compassion towards ourselves.  My mind is going to wander – that is a given.  To be critical of myself for my mind losing focus would be like yelling at a toddler for coloring on the wall.  They are crayons … they are meant to be used to add color.

When a child colors on the wall, we re-direct them to color in the coloring book.  It’s the same with meditation.  We redirect our minds back to breathing.  We don’t judge ourselves; we show compassion and understanding!

Seems like gratitude and meditation have a lot in common … both ensure we will build compassion and understanding in our lives.

Have a peaceful day!
