From introvert

Meditation

I have been meditating. FOR FOUR DAYS. Laugh all you want, but it feels like a miracle that I have been able to keep it up for that long. I have tried meditation before, but it always seemed to make me more anxious. I attributed it to a couple of things; the main ones being…

Connection

Meaningful connection. I am coming to understand that it is the life force that sustains me.
