- Your identity as a mother
- Boundaries and compromise
- …and many more
Motherhood is one of the most wonderful and powerful experiences we can have in life. As the early years of our children’s lives unfold, we will undoubtedly experience the joys they bring, but will also encounter the stresses and demands that appear daily and nightly on the parenting path. Using mindfulness practice to manage these demands we can become more present and meet life with awareness, in the moment. These 25 focused reflections on motherhood will help you find greater self-understanding and enable you to navigate a mindful path along this exciting journey.
