I have struggled with my thoughts for perhaps a life time. Beating my self up verbally in my head, what I should do and what I shouldn't be doing. Also my never ending list of just to do's - it is a bit overwhelming.
During a prayer time I was praying that if I could get rid of all of these thoughts life might not be so difficult. Funny then, I kept reading or hearing about people meditating and did a bit of research about how it is to control your thoughts instead of your thoughts control you.
I have only started my third month of practicing mediation and it is only about 20 minutes a day BUT.... I have noticed that during the rest of the day I am able to let go of negative thoughts faster. Also do not seem to get overwhelmed with stuff to do (though it is the same stuff). Lastly, shockingly I do not find myself arguing with my self or husband. It is this weird outside looking in view but I am seeing so good things.
So I will continue my 20 minutes and see if I can increase that a couple of times a week.
