Breathing in, I feel myself breathing in,
Breathing out, I feel myself breathing out.
Breathing in, breathing out.
Breathing in, I enjoy this inbreath,
Breathing out, I enjoy this outbreath.
Enjoying inbreath, enjoying outbreath.
Breathing in, I know that I am alive,
Breathing out, I am grateful to be alive.
Breathing in, alive, breathing out, grateful.
Repeat as necessary. <3
I'm a mom, wife, daughter, friend, and teacher who has long struggled with the desire to be the perfect person I imagine that I should be. Practicing mindfulness helps me find peace with my imperfect journey--being with myself as I truly am, loving my family as they are, and showing up for a messy world with openness and compassion.
