I started a new 1000 piece puzzle. For one hour, I was relaxed and without a thought. It was nice. I feel refreshed. I realized that this is my form of mediation.
Suddenly, mediation time was over, not because I thought it should be, but because my brain turned back on and in full competition mode. My goal was to finish the boarder in that sitting and I couldn’t find some pieces. I started to yell at the poor puzzle. “Where is this piece? Did I put it in the pile of the middle pieces? How do you not fit here!? WHERE IS THIS PIECE!?” I got no answers to any of my questions.
In all seriousness, it was relaxing. It is so important to have that quiet time and I’m glad I found my outlet. I guess I just have to know when to walk away. 😊
Oh, and I think I could do some serious mediation if I can jump into this puzzle when it’s complete.
