    One Day At a Time

    when i first got into meditation i thought i had to do it a certain way for a certain length of time. my attention span is very short, i'd sit down for a few minutes, try, but then let something distract me. i try to do it before i go to sleep, i have the most success that way.

    I meditate sometimes, mostly just before I fall asleep. The problem is, with 3 VERY active children, it is sometimes difficult to get a quiet moment long enuff to meditate. I do make sure to make the most of the quiet time that I DO get, though.
