Welcome to Mind Over Messy
Mind Over Messy is a place for mindfulness, in all its messiness.
Don’t we all have great intentions? To be really present, get the most out of life, enjoy every moment. But then LIFE happens. Someone is yelling at you out of nowhere, the kids are crying, grief may be in your life, you are trying to switch jobs, and bills are due (or maybe that’s just us!).
This blog approaches mindfulness as a practice. Recognizing there is no one and only solution to every problem, and when things fall apart, you feel it, release it, and get yourself back on track when you can.
And sometimes, sometimes you need to just laugh at the situation and then breathe your way through it.
Or maybe you take time to make something or create a lovingly prepared meal.
Or sit in the sand at the beach and feel really grounded.
Go find a quiet place to cry and let it out.
Get together with your besties and recharge.
Make time for yoga or another practice which keeps you moving and whole.
Whatever it is that makes you feel whole…
This is the place where you can question everything, but recognize somehow life keeps going and we are constantly asked to make decisions. Our limits are always tested or perhaps we are creating those tests to evolve and grow–It’s so hard to know for sure!
We hope you stay awhile and also share your thoughts in the comments, in an encouraging way that fosters this sense of mindfulness as being a “practice.” There is no getting it right.
Just us, trying…
