Blitz Post 4: Meditation Reflections

You can call this procrastination and not wanting to get out of bed this morning.  As I sit here in peace and quiet, I have been quietly meditating.

Meditation is one of those "things" I have always outwardly scoffed at at but on occasion do.  My problem with meditation is that for me it quite often turns to sleep.  This time was not the case.

I am reflecting on the direction of my life, my health, and my goals.  Several weeks ago I posted a rather ominous post, Crossroads.  Today's meditation provided me a lot of insight and may provide it's follow up post.

When you do too many things, you "wear too many hats".  Do you do that?  Check out my page to see my hat collection. I wear too many hats.  It's my choice too.  What is the result?  I don't sleep enough, I don't eat right, I don't exercise, and I don't appreciate the people around me.

This is not a post about being sad!  I said earlier, I had insight into what was going on.  I believe I had an epiphany of sorts.

Before everyone panics, let me assure you I will continue to blog and maintain my presence on Twitter.  In fact Social Media is very important to my future, so I'm not going away, but I digress.

My meditation led me to nine simple guidelines, which I believe if put in practice would lead to a happier world:

  • Put others before yourself 
  • Laugh
  • Slow down, focus, and observe
  • Cherish the people around you 
  • Walk
  • Live simply 
  • Get enough sleep
  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Meditate and Pray

These all seem to intertwine in one way or another.  Slow down & Walk.  Cherish the people around you & Put others before yourself.

I'm very interested in any comments you may have.

No recipe with this post.

Until next time, I wish you Peace, Love, and Hollandaise Sauce.

I disagree with you on one point, my friend. You did post a recipe. A great recipe for life. We should all strive to find balance in all these things; well said and thx for sharing your insight. :-)

Great post, Denis! Thought provoking and introspective, a by-product of time well spent. Thank you for sharing and your willingness to step outside and "break the rules," which, by the way, are yours to break! I'll not miss your next post...
