I have gotten so off track from my initial intentions with what I wanted to do with this blog, but that is going to change! When I started this blog (gasp) almost five years ago I entitled it “Ilona’s Meditation Challenge” because that’s what it was going to be. My original plan was to write down what I noticed from starting a daily 20-minute meditation practice and it kind of twisted and turned into something completely different, it became a bit more random. That’s okay though because from it I have gained a ton of blogging friends and acquaintances. I would like to steer this blog vehicle though back on track and keep at it.
With my 33rd birthday coming around the corner it has hit me that I truly am not getting any younger here. So with that, I want to work on sharing a blog post at least once a week about all things MIND, BODY, AND SOUL! I want to inspire others to be the best versions of themselves, to help remind them that WE CAN CHANGE OUR WAYS and that IT IS NEVER TOO LATE. The only way that we can make that truly happen though is to have the desire to change, that is the first step.
So in the coming weeks, I will be challenging myself (as my blog page is now accurately named) to post one blog post per week that has everything to do with: meditation, healthy eating, exercise, and anything else that you can think of that helps to heal MIND, BODY, AND SOUL. I am going to release any guilt that I have held onto about wasting time or any ways in which I have been unconscious. I want to change within, bring it out into the world and inspire others if they too have this similar goal.
Please join me in these coming weeks. I plan on sharing what I notice with my two daily meditations (I have now been meditating for 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the evening.) I will be sharing book reviews (I am currently reading When Things Fall Apart by Pema Chodron.) I will be recording guided meditations for you to listen to and try out. I might even try my hand at making a video or two!
The point is, we are all in this together. Everything is truly connected and everything we thought we knew is not going to last. So let’s prepare ourselves now so as not to freak out when the crumbling begins (which it has already started a bit anyhow.). Let’s become more conscious together. Let’s take a look at our bullshit stories that keep running/ruining our lives and transform them. Please take my hand and cross this river with me.
