It's still challenging to remain focused on my breath. The observer in me has gained some presence as I watch where my awareness goes while just sitting. My intention is to be in the present moment....and I see what occurs in my mind; it is preoccupied with planning, doing, thinking and my body is tense.
As I become aware of this, I no longer label it as wrong or bad. I simply observe it and come back to the breath. My observer develops with each practice. Mindfulness and no judgment on myself becomes my choice. This is part of self-love and self-acceptance with what is.
I look forward to meditation now and connecting with myself in stillness.
