I tried, okay. Now- before I even get started: I’m soooo not going all “zen master of the world”, more-spiritual-than-thou on you here. I am still very, very new at this whole meditation thing, and I’m still so far from being “good” at it. I know it’s a flaw of mine, but usually, if I’m…… Continue reading teeny tiny tips to tttttt…..meditate

But that’s my cross to bear.…… Continue reading nah, you wouldn’t like it..
