My 1 1/2 year old, Annabella

For those of you that are moms, you know it is like becoming a member of a secret society. There is no way to even begin to understand the pressures (or pleasures) of parenthood until you experience it. Before I had my daughter, Annabella, I would roll my eyes when someone said something like that, but truly there is simply no context for it. There is life before being a mom and life after being a mom. You must evolve.

Now couple that with being a business owner.  I marvel at how my days end up–how easy it is to become engrossed in work or my daughter and how easy it is to never be 100% present to either. To instead be half present, always working, always mothering, with everything bleeding together.

I don’t want to live that way. I want to be present and mindful. I want to be a great mom, a “mindful mama” as my mothers support group is called. One of the things that helps is to do my affirmations each day. Here is my latest favorite:

“I am where I am”.

    Yeah, I’d love a more mindful like, too, but wonder how to do that without being as driven as I am with other tasks. Guess, that’s why life is long, to have time to figure these things out.

    Asking myself, “Is this what you want?” several times a day, usually when I’m feeling resentful about something, keeps me be present and decide how to respond, rather than just react. I’ve gotten some miraculous results, especially dealing with my teens.
