I’m Pam, a 38 year old married stay at home British mother of two living on the East Coast of Australia. At the beginning of 2012 I wasn’t in a good place mentally. I’d stopped counting my blessings and appreciating the little things, and my lack of perspective was making me miserable. I’d become very resentful of my lot, and having had a few brushes with some Buddhist teachings, and the concept of mindfulness in particular, I decided that some changes were required for the sake of my own happiness and that of my little family. My mission was:
I am not my best self, and my family deserves my best self. I will find out what is missing, one post at a time. I will become a Mindful Mum!
I am definitely much happier and at peace for having started down this mindful path. I do believe it’s a life long journey and I am most certainly not consistently mindful and calm – very far from it! But I absolutely believe that the path of mindfulness is the only way for me to go. The blog has expanded beyond the themes of mindfulness and gratitude and into the realms of family, parenting and pregnancy too, as I have become more involved in the blogging world and recognised just how much value there is in sharing, learning and connecting via blog reading and writing.
I hope you enjoy your visit to my little corner of the blogosphere. Thank you for stopping by 🙂
