I can be really patient with some things, some people, many situations. I can be really impatient with some things, certain people, particular situations.
Meditation has helped with my patience. Every day, if even for only a handful of minutes. Counting to 10 helps my meditation. Counting to 10 as I breathe keeps me focused. Aligns my mind, preventing distraction. If I can breathe for 10 seconds, be still for 10 seconds, be present for 10 seconds, I can do anything.
Wanting to be patient? Curious about meditation? Start with 10. Count slowly with each inhale and exhale. Then count to 10 again. If you can count to 10, you can do anything. If ten takes awhile and more patience than you have, cool, start with 5, it’s half way to 10.
Hi, I’m Jenny Gwinn McGlothern, Certified Transformational Master Life Coach, Retreat Leader and Writer. As founder of my retreat business, Mama Needs A Refill, LLC, one way I know I fill my cup is by showing up to a blank page to write. Thank you for stopping by and reading my Random Monday Thoughts, because I will be honest that fills my cup too, knowing others are reading my filled page. Life is too short to blog about anything else unless it touches my heart. Please know I appreciate you joining me on this journey whether you visit every week since I began in 2008 or this is your first blog stop.
Interested in life or spiritual coaching or want to learn more about my retreats in Seattle, please find me on FaceBook, www.FaceBook.com/MamaNeedsARefill or visit my website: www.mamaneedsarefill.com)
