My Year of Spirituality

My year of spirituality{Last year I suddenly realized that I was doing well in most respects of life except one. Of course I did what any self-respecting hipster would do: promptly download a meditation app and a couple of spirituality podcasts. And I thought: Yay! I will be spiritual by the end of the year. It’s amazing how these things happen – my friend Indira sent me a spirituality book out of the blue. “The Places That Scare You” by Pema Chödrön. I knew it! The universe really wanted me to be spiritual! And then something happened. I got pregnant! After the initial disbelief, I must say that it was this most commonplace phenomenon that really helped to open my eyes and perceive the wonderful, magical, beauty of creation. Anteater: God you can’t attribute everything to pregnancy – I still believe that the iPhone is the surest path to spirituality.”}

And yes I had my son earlier this year and we have both survived his early life.
