March is National Women’s History Month. During this month we have the opportunity to intentionally and purposefully share the issues AND successes of women. While it would be awesome if this was done daily, let’s choose to be deliberate this month. Today we are celebrating — PARITA!
Chronic stress is what led me to meditate on a serious level. I had an awareness of meditation; however, I was led to believe it was a woo-woo practice for those who were not ‘saved’ by GOD. I am so thankful that I did not allow this untruth to hold me hostage to a condition that was killing me softly.
My first thoughts of meditation was what is this woo-woo stuff / how in the world am I going to be able to sit still and be quiet / I have too much going on to meditate / how is this going to help me. All of this filled my mind, yet I figured it would not hurt to give it a try.
Meditation is essentially the art of focusing your attention. Whether you focus on your breath, a mantra (or scripture) or use visualization; meditation is simply being intentional with your focus.
