this year i feel that my mantra is to "mindfulness" which is simiar to "focus" but more of an emphasis on the importance of taking time to really be in the moment. i like to take little moments throughout my day to pause and maybe watch my son sleep, his eye lids fluttering, or maybe take my lunch outside to absorb some sunlight and listen to the birds chatting, leaves rustling, neighbors flute playing in the distance. this little boy of mine is growing up fast, and i don't want to miss a blink of it.
do you have a mantra you're focusing on this year?
