So I try to meditate (i.e. sit in silence and not do anything and sometimes achieve this cool, out-of-body spinning sensation) for 10 minutes every morning during the week.
I've been doing it consistently for the past - mmm - four months (?) but have been doing it on-and-off over the past 2-3 years.
Just a quick note - I highly (!!) recommend it to iron out any spikey brain waves and to get your day started on a relatively calm-yet-energized note.
This morning, as I was meditating (with the Dreamy Vibes playlist from Spotify in the background), I noticed this thought pop up in my mind:
"I'm not ready."
Normally during my meditations, I just zone out for a few minutes and am not really all that conscious of any thoughts peeping up. But this morning, I was surprised that that thought was so clear.
It's good to have this clear idea of what exactly I'm thinking because now I can go about my daily tasks while being aware that any resistance to what I'm doing is most likely a direct result of this one thought of not being ready.
Yay for clarity! Yay for doing whatever I was going to do anyway!
Today it's 1) working through a couple sections of API work in my Udemy course, 2) making a minimum of 5 get-out-the-vote calls for Americans abroad, and 3) designing a few media graphics.
What's on your plate? Anything your brain is telling you you're 'not ready' for?
