When I quit the corporate world to be a stay at home mom, trust me the decision was not an easy one. From brainstorming ideas and working on new concepts, I moved to baby talk with my boys. Of course , I was happy with them and being a mother, but somewhere deep inside me, I knew that I was not happy as a person.
A chance conversation with a friend introduced me to meditation. I still have not mastered the art of meditation as yet, because I still have the to-do lists swimming in my mind when I meditate, but meditation bought with it subtle changes in my lifestyle. Meditation made me realize the power of gratitude and it also made me realize how important it was to love myself.
5 reasons why we should meditate
When we mediate we are focusing on compassion, love and good will, all of these qualities that make us wonderful people. Meditation is not just about sitting crossed leg and chanting mantras.

At the start of the year, I resolved to accomplish certain goals that would help me be better professionally and personally. I wanted to start writing for a recognized blog that had a strong international presence. It was around the same time that I got to know about Elephant Journal thanks to Vidya Sury, the awesome blogger of Going A-musing who would often tweet about them. When I started reading about them I realised that they promoted all things that I believed in and honestly, I would not have had a better platform to showcase myself. That was when I made a note that by January, I would want to get accepted with them. And when you believe good things will happen to you, it actually will! This is my fourth post published with Elephant Journal and I believe that this is just the start.
