Pleasure to be here. Really nice forum and pretty nice for newbies like myself since there doesn't seem to be restrictions on new members to post and whatnot. Little background on myself. My name is Jon and I'm a recovering manchild who has spent many years vegging out and neglecting my health. I began a daily meditation practice last summer and made a lot of changes to the way I think and live my life. I'm 26 years old, and compared to my 24 year old self, I'm (almost) a completely different person. For many years I have chosen not to engage or interact with people (even online) mainly because I felt like I had some kind of innate deficiency and that I was doing people a favor by staying away. However once I realized that my brain could change the whole game changed. Bars. I actually started to imagine myself living a healthy life with healthy relationships, in a healthy body. This is pretty big for me, since I used to believe I was genetically programmed to be fat, awkward, and unhealthy. Thanks to the internet and modern science though I have had this paradigm shift and the myth has been shattered. Anyway, enough about me, what's your story, reader?
