For new moms: letter to your future self

I have been following Sarah Rudell Beach’s “Left Brain Buddha” site for a while now. It’s perfect for me because I aspire to mindfulness but too often find my left brain running the show.

Sarah’s most recent post, “Dear Exhausted, Struggling Mama…,” is a great read for parents of children of any age, but especially if yours are in the earlier stages. I recommend that you go and read it. Even if the baby needs to be fed and the toddler is whining and you haven’t started making dinner. You’ll feel better. And if you’re past this stage, as I am, it will remind you of the huge reservoirs of compassion we need to maintain for parents and families.
