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.
As a mom, wife, and human being, I have long struggled with the desire to be the perfect person I imagine that I should be. Mindfulness and mindful parenting have helped me get to know the beauty of the imperfect journey that I'm really on.
