I do not think I am alone in having, well, quite an active inner monologue. In fact, she never shuts the hell up. With God’s grace, she has simmered down a lot over the last year or so. Still chatty, but a little less obnoxious and unreasonable.
Meditation has truly been a transformative practice in my life.
It’s like a muscle, I think- to build it, you must exercise it. It’s awkward at first-- I felt like I was doing it all wrong, and was embarrassed at how often my mind wandered. But God, in His great power and grace is working through my mediocre meditating.
I share a little bit about my experience because May is National Mental Health Month and Mindfulness month. There are a lot of great resources out there, especially right now. And if your are curious about where to begin, hit me up..I’m rambling down this path too!
