Life List Update: An Island. A Lighthouse. A State of Mind.
This is a picture that I took while on the ferry as we approached Block Island. My mom and I took a day trip there a couple of weeks ago. Going to Block Island was #87 on my life list.
It's a really beautiful place. So quaint and charming. But we didn't have the time to explore on our own.
Also, it was a bit drizzly on the day we were there. But the mostly dreary sky set the stage for visiting Southeast Lighthouse. Visiting a lighthouse was #42 on my life list.
I'd love to visit again and have a slower paced day. A Taste of Block Island takes place in September. That might be a nice time to go back.
As I was going through my life list to write this post, I realized that I completed another goal without even realizing it. #98 was to meditate at least three times a week. Now I do more than that!
Over the last several months, I've increased the number of times that I meditate each week. I've also increased the time that I spend meditating.
Now, I meditate at least every other day, on average 10-15 minutes. Sometimes a couple of times a day. I made it to around 25 minutes once! It happened slowly and now it's become a habit. Definitely a good habit!
I'd like to meditate every day, but I do miss some here and there. It's okay. It seems that I'll progress at the pace that works best. I feel more focused than before. Maybe it's the meditation?
It's interesting having this life list. The sheer act of making it, propels you towards your goals. Sometimes when you least expect it.
