I keep saying that in many ways this a the perfect time to start a new practice, develop and existing one, make a change for the better and care for ourselves. Embracing mornings has been one way I have been doing that. Each day brings new energy, opportunities and adventures. Just because my day doesn't start at daybreak doesn't make it any different.

And let's also remember to be kind to ourselves. There is no 'failing' at meditation. Try it and then let it go; the point is not to dwell or judge or criticize.
I will continue this series to share what I am doing to put my journey back into gear. I have been idling enjoying the place where I arrived, but now it is time to push on, to challenge myself, to climb the next hill, to round the next curve because as good as this place is, I know the next will be even better.
