Your pursuit of mindfulness has probably led you into many new and exciting directions. Part of learning a new skill - like meditation, yoga or a singing bowl, is being able to honor where you currently are.
As Theodore Roosevelt said, "Comparison is the thief of all joy."
Part of the wonderful feedback loop of learning a new practice is that you start out as a complete beginner, which can be frustrating. It's healing to start out as a newbie, and to watch your progression over time.
