What if you and I are already enough? What if we are good enough parents? Good enough cooks and housekeepers and employees and whatever? What if the only purpose of this day is to be here in our lives enjoying it?
Would it change your day to know you are enough? Change what you do, how you are with your child, how you spend your time? Just the idea changes something for me as I roll into the day.
May you and I remember our essential goodness and worth today and all days. May we greet ourselves with openness and love and acceptance. May we have a beautiful day.
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.
