Please join me if you'd like and take on each week's meditation and goal, or use the opportunity to reflect on it and evaluate if it's something you would want to incorporate in your life in some way. Leave me a comment here and this can become our little forum and weekly community. Deal?
Chances are if you're reading my blog, you're reading several others, and may even be a blogger yourself. Do you ever stop to think about what impact reading these blogs has on your life, your habits? Most all blogs I read are incredibly inspirational, and that's what keeps me coming back. I like to follow "tastemakers" in different areas to stay up on the trends around home interiors, fashion, food, etc. But on the flip side of all this inspiration, is the risk of letting your mind slip to a feeling of deficiency. I would be lying if I said I've never read a blog about a great shoe, purse, home accessory, and added the item to my ever-growing wish list, even though it wasn't even on my radar before. By consolidating all the wants and desires you discover from several sources, all of a sudden you can feel like your wish list is a little overwhelming. Don't get me wrong, it's fun to discover new things to aspire to do or have, it's just a matter of maintaining balance, and keeping things in perspective.
This week, I'll live out this Monday Meditation by neither posting about any consumer products nor will I buy anything discretionary. It's really for myself, to reflect on what is necessary vs. nice-to-have, and put my ever-growing wish list in perspective.
Anyone want to join me? Can anyone relate? And, do you like the idea of this being a weekly series, with a new "meditation" each Monday?
