I have read many say that meditation is great and it works...but how do you quiet the mind? As soon as I am alone and have the space and time to try this method my brain starts to race and go ranting everywhere but quiet. I guess I have way to many preoccupations on the mind to focus on being mindful. I have intense dialogue going on in my head about how someone acted/reacted to me, how am I going to stay PM free, how am I going to avoid temptations and how am I not changing one habit/addiction for another. I have so many insecurities, self-doubts, self-esteem and body shame issues. the list goes on and on. I am tackling one item on my list, PM, and trying to add another, obsessiveness. So far I have been successful in staying PM free and hope and pray that I will stay the path and keep on track to being PM free for life.
