Lately I have been focusing more on being present, being with my kids.
Enjoying our farm and our schedule.
Embracing (and ignoring) the messy parts. Accepting. Absorbing.
I am a high-strung person. I expect a level of non-achievable perfection from myself. The past few months have been about unlearning this. About self-love. Self-compassion. This takes practice, serious practice. I now catch myself and the negative mantras that go through my head. I plan to carry this practice through the rest of my life. Practice self-love. Practice gratitude. It gets easier as time goes on...
Life is amazing.
