As this New Year rolled in, I set the intention to greet whatever comes with courage and an open heart and to practice gratitude every day.
Already, my new year has brought some bumps! And already, I have made mistakes. Beautifully, I can (and will) return to courage, open-heartedness, and gratitude again and again, every day, all year.
As a mom (to 2 teenage sons), wife, and person in the world, I have been on a long imperfect journey. I have made many mistakes, but with mindfulness, emotional reflection, and lots of support I have learned enormously from those mistakes.
