This moment is exactly how it is, whether we like it or not. Can we accept that it's like this?
What's up in your 'right now'? And are you at peace with it?
Are your kids loud?
Are you well-rested?
Do you already have a good plan for dinner?
Do you feel healthy?
Are you scared?
Whatever is happening, today's practice is to show up for it as it is. Of course, this includes showing up for how we feel about it and tenderly taking care of our feelings.
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.
