project 365 {2}

Morning meditation, originally uploaded by Lotus Tree Crafts.
Little known fact about yours truly, since September I have meditating on an almost daily basis. There have been highs and lows in the process, (I thought I'd be more Zen by now, but alas, no). Anyways, all in all, I'm happy that this practics is something that I've brought into my life.

I never thought that I'd be able to be consistent in a meditation practice. In my life, I have a tendancy of hitting the 3 month mark and then slowly petering out. This is true of the gym, yoga, biking, prior meditation practice, and well, just about every other good intention out there that I've had!

I won't lie, there have been times where my meditation practice has fallen to the wayside (Christmas morning, New Year's day, stomach flu, or even, when I was really into a book I was reading...). But that said, all in all, I've meditated at least 3/4s of all those days between Sept and now. And for me, that's a big, no huge, accomplishment.

So today, in my year of photos, I felt the need to honour that accomplishment and share it with you all. One of the big differences this time around is that I went into my daily meditation practice knowing this about myself and accepting it to be the case, AND that I have a form of accountability in my practice, people I check in with and help me keep on track.

I may not be more Zen yet, but my daily meditations are reshaping my world, slowly but surely!
