Today I went to yoga and meditated, so I’m, like, WAY cool spiritually.
What’s up with today?
Although I did spent my morning at yoga, things were a bit hectic at home. My husband didn’t go into the office. The house projects are still ongoing. And it’s 100 degrees outside, so I can’t even seek solace in the Relax Shack.

Trying to tune it all out, I hit the go button on today’s Headspace meditation session. (Don’t know what I’m talking about? Click here.)
Thoughts Gone (Slightly Less) Wild
During the 10-minute guided meditation, I had the following thoughts:
- That James Vincent McMorrow remake of Steve Winwood’s Higher Love we listened to in yoga was soooooooooooo good!
- Is that a nail gun?
- Man, this dude’s voice is soothing…
- Nail gun!!!
Better Than Yesterday
I did feel like I had fewer thoughts during meditation today than yesterday. And I did like that today’s lesion was that meditation is a skill that takes practice. It doesn’t have to be some mystical thing. I remember saying this in a talk I gave about fashion.
Also, we learned that thoughts are OK. We’re not trying to get rid of them. We’re just trying to be at peace with them.
Noted weirdness: referring to the mind as “it,” as if it’s something separate. Sort of Matrix, which really sort of Cartesian: Cogito, Mind-body dualism <<End of philosophical rabbit hole>>
