I am new to meditation. To be completely honest I've meditated all of three times in my life. However, meditation is something that's been at the bottom of my to-do list for way too long. So, I've decided to add it to my Bliss List this year. 

Yesterday I went out onto our screened in balcony and sat down on the rug next to the Christmas tree. I picked my three favorite ornaments off of the tree and I stared at them. They slowly became my mantra as I drifted out of my monkey mind and into my bliss. 

The smell of real pine next to the sweet, warm Florida air was incredibly pleasing. I could hear the palm branches hit the side of the apartment in a nice whoosh, whoosh, whoosh. I took that pattern and said to myself, "Love, Dream, Imagine."

I cleared out all the to-do lists from my brain, I cleared all the shoulds, I cleared out all the anger, sorrow and physical pain. I packed up my cell phone and internet compulsions and left them far, far away from me. I shoved everything right inside my balcony door to deal with later. For now I would sink into my bliss, even for 30 minutes. And it was heavenly.

  1. I’m really proud of you fighting so hard to be happy and find moments of joy in your life. We all should be this good to ourselves.

  2. Everyones mantra should be “Love, Dream, Imagine!” Meditation during the holidays, what a great idea!

  3. Love, Dream, Imagine – You’ve inspired me to try it. And your “eight things” list inspired me to make one of my own.
