It's been exactly a year since I started this blog. I had been having an impulse to do more writing about my work but kept feeling kind of precious about it, like I had to write the right thing in the right way. Suddenly one morning while meditating I got a clear directive, just write every single day for a year. So I started. For more than half the year I wrote every day, then slowed down to weekly postings.
It's been a practice of loosening my voice and sharing my ideas and beliefs and wonderings, and I'm truly grateful to have done it.
Now, one year later, I've been considering 'what's next?' So far I've changed the name. It's been 'A Year of Conscious Parenting,' but that year is now over, so I'm calling it 'On the Imperfect Journey' which is a pretty fair description of my life!
If you've been following and reading, thank you! If something has touched your heart along the way, I am so glad! I'm not sure how the blog will be moving forward, but I hope it continues to serve me as a way to reflect and serves you as a map along one person's journey.
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.
