Today was not a good day in my journey of becoming more Zen.

I woke up before my alarm feeling anxious about all the things I knew I needed to get done at work today. I meditated, but could feel my mind trying to sneak off to pre-plan for potential issues that might come up in my day ‘stay here mind – right in this moment – stop bloody sneaking off!’

Work was nuts, as expected. I had planning on trying to find small moments in my day to be more mindful, but I succeeded to do this all of zero times.

Today was meditation fail day.

Ok, I’m being dramatic, but I do feel a bit rubbish about not being able to be a bit more on top of things today.

Tomorrow is a new day I’m putting this one behind me and looking forward to Tuesday.

Calm, focused Tuesday….
