Hello! Happy Monday. I hope everyone has a smooth start to their week.
If you can think back, my goal for this month was 5 minutes of meditation a day. I knew all along it would be challenging for me, but I did not really give this one a chance. I was on a roll with each month prior to April; however, this meditating simply did not happen.
Why? Well I just didn’t commit to it. Historically April is always a very busy and stressful month for me at work as the AP test approaches for my students, but this year April has proven to be especially challenging. My friend was diagnosed with leukemia at the beginning of the month, and since her that day I feel as if I’m in a fog. I’m accustomed to seeing her almost every day, and this has been so shocking and hard to accept. I think about her all the time, and I feel helpless.
While this has been extremely difficult to accept, I don’t want to forget about myself and let my goals fall by the wayside. So I didn’t meditate much this month; move on. I am choosing not to be too hard on myself and keep moving forward. I’m hoping to add meditating to one of my summer months this year. But for now, I’m going to call this a wash, and move on to May. May is always a good month with warm weather, plenty of sunshine, and the school year winding down.
