As suggested by Jamie Ridler I created my Joy card via PowerPoint. I have joined Jamie for her reading group The Next Chapter:The Joy Diet. This week's lesson was to do nothing for 15 minutes a day. The first day I totally spaced out. While trying to quiet my mind the thoughts within it became louder and louder. So, I decided visualization works best for me. Each day for 15 minutes I'd visualize myself in a huge sunflower field (I LOVE THEM). I would pay attention to every detail around me, which would completely calm me. After my 15 minutes I felt refreshed. My mom has always been the type of mom that has to clean or do something in fear of no longer being significant. As her child a little of that leaped into me, but since learning meditation and after reading the chapter of nothing I no longer feel guilty for thinking her way of thing was insane. This was no easy task, but for me it was very necessary as I'm sure it was for the other ladies who are participating. I'm truly looking forward to the next task as this first one has truly intrigued me to the highest!
I'm Grateful: For Jamie and our group, For The Joy Diet book, Gentle morning, nothingness and tons of love.
