Stressed Out by Meditation

Going to meditation class was stressing me out, so today I quit. With promises of learning to "cultivate ease, clarity, kindness and awareness in our daily lives," I signed up for a six-week Intro to Meditation. I went to the first one, missed the next two, and today I realized how much it was stressing me out to get there and how next week I'd need to leave early to get to a book reading I really want to attend...and in all this frantic frenzy I stopped myself. I have a choice. If this is making me crazy, I don't have to go. And I'm not. I'm a meditation school drop out, and I'm more serene because of it. Hmm...now where is that chocolate.

Technically, the meditation class helped. :p

That's funny. "Meditation made me Nervous". Sounds like the title of a pulp fiction novel. Maybe you should have taken valium, and THEN gone to meditation, bet you would have gotten an A.

Meno you're hilarious - valium and meditation, the ultimate veg out. Lucia, this is so ironic. I love that life works that way and we learn to work with it.
