“Mindfulness is about being present and compassionate in the moment, whatever that moment may look like. What I have come to learn – the unexpected gift of the practice – is that the more mindful I am, the more likely that I will be there (wherever there is!) for the good moments as well as the bad ones. And as so many parents know, the good moments of parenting can be really, really good.”
