Today was one of those days where I felt like I earned my evening Buddhist meditation class. This morning I set an intention to do good work and to complete it in a timely fashion so that I could relax into the class when the time came.

The work got done. I am proud of the Game Plan column I submitted for Wednesday. I thoroughly enjoyed an interview I conducted for an upcoming piece on philanthropy. Emails were dealt with. Calls were made.

Finally, when I sat on the floor and immersed myself in the meditation, I was fully present.
