I haven’t been posting much lately, and for that I apologize. I am planning my own wedding with my fiance that will take place September 28. There are many things to finalize and make. I have also been working with a local agency to find some sort of job so my fiance and I can have a place of our own sometime around the wedding date. Both of these things together make life very stressful, and so I haven’t posted much. I have been physically ill from the stress, which means I haven’t been doing much spiritual practice.
I have recently learned to knit, which somewhat helps with the stress. I am currently working on a scarf to wear in the fall and winter. It isn’t perfect, but it is only my first project, so I’m not beating myself up about it.
I am finding that now may perhaps be a perfect time to learn to meditate and establish a daily practice. Meditation has been shown to reduce stress levels in many studies. I know it will be hard to get started, but hopefully the benefits will encourage me to keep going. A friend of mine is working on a sort of “meditation training program” that provides a structured way of learning meditation and trance that I am very interested in. I hope to hear more about the progress of this program in the coming weeks.
I feel like I should be doing some sort of spiritual practice, but with physical sickness, I’m not really sure what it would be. If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them.
I hope all of you are having a good time with life right now.
