As a mom of two young girls and a business to run I had ZERO “mindful moments” during the day. I became an embarrassing downward spiral of overwhelm, resentment and door slamming. I wanted to change and I felt like I "should" have all the answers, but I just couldn't do it.
That's the key, I couldn't do it alone. I had to have help, lots of it, from it many angles. My mom-rage has improved dramatically, but I'm still finding more ways to support myself and becoming more mindful, because mindfulness turned out to be the key.
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness can be a specific type of formal meditation, but I like to think of it as "noticing", becoming aware of where you are, in your body, thoughts, and feelings at a given moment. In moments of joy, it brings added joy. In moments of challenge it brings the space and sweetness you need to respond in the way you want.
This page, and this chapter of my story, is under construction at this time, and I have many hopes and dreams for what it will become; a place to connect, to offer classes for parents searching for resources and tools to reclaim their connection with themselves, their partner and their children.
However in the meantime please read the articles and take the classes from some of these people paving the way for mindfulness in our day-to-day life.
