My Reflection Series features resources to inspire intentional and compassionate parenting. Each instalment of the series shares a photo from my week with a simple insight, plus five links I have found motivational during my current journey as a mother.
My Moment of Reflection:
Somewhere along the way, I learned to make life complicated. I worried, I put undue stress on myself, I started negative self-talk, I rushed through my days.
Spending time with my newborn baby has reminded me once again how simple life really is: live your best, find joy in the little things, and do good to the people and environment around you.
A life of contentment is not comparing your circumstances or choices to anyone else, not wishing for something else, just enjoying what you have in the moment and working hard to be kind and help others every day.
As a new mother again I’m finding beauty in the simple things my daughter does and the simple things she sees, and remembering that “less” is often “more.”
I’m remembering to live life for my true purpose.
I hope you will enjoy and be touched by these articles as much as I have.
