So, I’ve started meditating every morning, for 15 minutes.
This is no small accomplishment — everyone knowns that getting a new piece of morning ritual in place takes some doing. I felt a little smug about it. I have friends who have been serious about their practice for years, and yet find the morning time to be the most challenging for them.
Removing as many barriers as possible between me and my new practice meant I needed an easy timer of some kind to signal that I was “done.”
Lest I continue to take myself too seriously, I selected my new meditation tool with special care:
Take that ego! You’ll find me and my new bunny egg timer in my rocking chair again tomorrow morning. Maybe tomorrow’s mantra should be “What’s Up Doc?”
