Since I've started meditating more regularly (shoutout to Andy from @headspace who now narrates my dreams) I've begun to appreciate the power of mantras. When I first started, the silence was a breeding ground for everything BUT letting go. I found that repeating a mantra was the one thing that helped me stay focused... on nothing. Meditating is ironic.
One of my favorite mantras is "I already have all I need." No one said these had to be Deepak Chopra poetic. Ask me how many @glossier pouches I have scattered throughout my apartment + the amount of inanimate objects I’ve forged profound connections with. Bottom line, I'm on the hoarder spectrum. Especially during the hoopla of the the holiday season, I find the reminder that "I already have all I need" to be extremely powerful. Another fun way to trick yourself? Kick off your 2018 resolutions now. My resolution? Less shit. *anyone who has ever been in my apartment can collectively sigh their relief now*
