Meditation Monday

Welcome to a new week.  I am going to be on the road again this week - back up to Michigan to help my mom.  At least this time it is not a surprise and I can get my head wrapped around it better.  Well, that is the theory any way.  =)

This week my image for meditation is:

Patience is not really one of my strong points.  Seriously, my husband is now laughing out loud at how grossly understated that sentence is.   

Being impatient is bad, but the really bad thing is that when I start a new project and do not get the results I want right away; my impatience tends to push me to give up.  Oh who has all this time to invest, I'm just not going to bother.  I tell my three year old all the time to just keep at it, and he will figure it out.  Some times I really do need to take my own advice.

So this week I am going to focus on doing the work, and not worry so much about the results.  My yoga instructor says that we are simply "aiming" towards a pose.  I am going to focus on that aim this week, and not so much on the final pose.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

  1. Love this, I am not very good at patience:( But I love this motto, keep aiming!


  2. That's a lovely way to look at things - aiming is just as important as getting there :)

  4. Hola Holly,
    This is a great message. I really need to exercise on "aiming" at having patience where my children are concerned. Thank for linking up and sharing!

  5. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
    I think Patience is something you learn with age...I certainly did!! LOL!!


  6. Holly, what a great post. I, too, am working on my patience level. I started this thing with my 7 year old daughter that when trying to do something, don't give up but instead try it at least 3 times, then ask for help. Secretly, that little mantra is not just for her. Kids watch us and that's how they learn. So, that means, I have to be try my best because she's watching me. I also practice deep breathing and counting to 10. Sounds silly, but it actually helps!
