Last day on Holy Island...

UNITED KINGDOM | Saturday, 12 May 2012 | Views [715]

Claire, Laura and I went to the Green Tara meditation this morning at 6am.  I ended up waking up by myself at 5am since it was bright out, but I was still exhausted because I had a hard time falling asleep again.  The meditation was really cool...mostly ... Read more >

Adapting to Changes...

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 11 May 2012 | Views [636]

This is actually last night's blog...slacked off on uploading it yesterday since I went to bed early...heheh This silent thing definitely isn't working for me.  I was doing so well until around 11am.  Fen, one of the volunteers here, distracted me and ... Read more >

Finally...a breakthrough....

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 10 May 2012 | Views [400]

3:35PM I had a hard time falling asleep again last night.  I think my body is not meant to sit idle for so many hours in a day and all that stored up energy keeps me up late at night.  When my alarm went off at 6:45am, I reset it to 8:15 which is breakfast ... Read more >

My mind wants to do it's own thing...

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 9 May 2012 | Views [818]

Wednesday, 8:47AM I got off to a rough start this morning...I broke silent time within the first 5 minutes of waking up (but I had a good excuse) and the 7:30am meditation didn't go so well.  As I was coming back to my room from the bathroom this morning ... Read more >

Acceptance...and lots of it...

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 8 May 2012 | Views [495]

I had a hard time falling asleep last night...I think it was because I was drinking green tea all day and at night...so I was pretty wired from the caffeine.  Whenever I can't sleep, I stress over how tired I'll be the next day if I don't fall asleep ... Read more >

The journey begins...with planes, trains, automobiles and more!

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 7 May 2012 | Views [753] | Comments [3]

Yesterday was such a long day...probably because I barely slept for 34 hours. This was definitely the most complicated commute I've ever done while traveling. Starting from car to the airport --> 3 plane rides --> bus #1 --> train --> ferry ... Read more >

I'm flying back to the states in a few hours...so really looking forward to going home!!! I'm suppose to return to Australia on June 18...but that's a big "suppose"...if I am not able to get a business class ticket, I will most likely not ... Read more >

Nice relaxing weekend....

I had a great and relaxing weekend!!!  I forced myself to only respond to work emails this weekend instead of actually doing work...and I'm glad I did because I feel so much better and less stressed (at least for now). I didn't really have any plans ... Read more >

At airport right now waiting on my flight to Sydney. This has been a long and tiring week...I'm glad I am taking Friday off for this short trip.  I have a conference call in the morning and after that, I don't plan on doing anymore working until I get ... Read more >
