My Monkey Mind – A Meditation Journal #6

Hello bloggies, with all that’s been going on recently it’s been hard to get time to post on here and certainly talk about meditating. But in a way that’s kind of what I would like to talk about. Not putting too fine a point on it, a huge amount has been going on, at home at work. Throw into that a week where I felt pretty crap and still it goes on.

Where has meditation fitted in? When and wherever I can.

I’ve missed the odd day here or there and that’s annoyed me, but not as much as it first did. I carried on when I was ill – I thought it helped a lot too. I can’t put my finger on it but it just kind of felt that it helped. Some days’ have been so full of crap and stuff that I’ve missed out, only realising when the day is done.

So what am I trying to say – keep it up. I have to keep it up now becasue I think it’s helping me a lot and I’ve found something different from meditating through it all, but those moments of peace are precious. I make sure I grab them!

Thanks for listening.

Random Acts of Kindness Award

Like Cyranny with this award I’m chaeting a little. She kindly nominated me for the Random Acts of Kindness award but pinged Planet Simon, I’m going to post my reply on here instead.

I don’t know much about this award but seems to be something you do to randomly select great blogger sna give them some love as an act of kindness. But I owuld like to say that blogging is something that has affected me more than I could have imagined, there are people who have come and sadly gone. The landscape is always changing but some just stay and they have a special place. Some of those aren’t mentioned here as Cyranny stole them from me… but they all know who they are. So with that I’ll shut up and I’ll just select them.
But these are all bloggers that are great and deserve some kindness. I can honestly say that this is not the full list and I may well add to it.

But to those here and all thank you for being great bloggers and kind and friendly 🙂

Life Hacks – Clearing Ice from your Windscreen

Up here in England it’s technically still Winter, so every so often I go out and find a frosted up windscreen. It used to be the ting to pour hot water on, but that can damage the windscreen, even warm can cause trouble… So it’s a pain the bottom if you want to get away… or at least it used to be.

Someone told me about this neat little trick.

So here’s the frosted windscreen…

Take a plastic bag and fill it with warm water…

Wipe the bag over the windscreen and hey presto… ice clears. Just remember to clear it with the wipers before you get too far or it re-freezes. It only takes a minutes and it will clear the side windows and mirrors.

Before long… it’s all done!

I hope that’s useful to you guys!

My Monkey Mind – A Meditation Journal #5

Hi there! It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted on this, with all that’s going on it gets a bit hard to keep the momentum going on everything.

I have been keeping up on my meditation routine…but… I missed a couple of days over the last two weeks. I was gutted… seriously I had got in over 50 days continuous meditation and then poof – back to zero.

I know I shouldn’t be counting it like that and it shouldn’t matter but I guess when something’s important to you, these things do matter. I also missed one last week. I had forgotten until about bed time and I was laying there wondering if I should get up and do it… but I think the day had passed. I was too tired.

The next thing I’ve been noticing is how each session can feel different from the last, no tow are the same either that or I forget which would not be unusual for me. But I’m also finding new way to reach peace and even if sometimes I don’t feel like it’s working I at least use it to get some peace and sometimes to let thoughts wash over me. It’s funny what memories come to the surface, things I had long forgotten.

That’s it for now, I hope I’ll post again sooner.
