Things to Remember

“Parenting is a balance of controlled chaos.”

“The beauty of utilizing mindfulness is that it doesn’t have to be really long drawn-out process.”

“Everyone exists, not just black people. There’s so many different beautiful ethnicities and cultures that all deserve to be celebrated.”

“You’ll be better equipped to handle the chaos if you’ve taken a moment to center yourself first.”

“Mindfulness is being curious about what is happening and why.”

Josephine Atluri

“Mindful parenting is the hardest job on the planet, but it’s also one that has the potential for the deepest kind of satisfaction over the life span, and the greatest feeling of interconnectedness and community and belonging.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn
