In every moment there are conditions for joy, happiness, and wonder. There are also conditions for fear, anger, and judgment, right? And it's our choice which part of ourselves to exercise and develop. I'm excited to be planning an entire month of posts and videos dedicated to positive, loving practices, please join me throughout August for inspiration and support!
And today, warm up with me by looking around where you are right now and noticing three beautiful things. I'm sitting in my living room which is kind of messy, but am able to see many beautiful things. An orchid that a friend gave me recently. My son's guitar. The beautiful reclaimed wood floors that we installed this spring and summer. How about you--what do you see (without even getting up or moving around)?
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.
