“We can make our minds so like still water that beings gather about us that they may see, it may be, their own images, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life because of our quiet.” -William Butler Yeats 

I love this quote because it speaks to aspirations I hold for my life.  Like most people I wear many hats.  I am a mental health therapist, yoga student & teacher, wife, daughter, sister, auntie, dog-mom, artist and former world traveler/ returned Peace Corps volunteer.

I try not to take myself too seriously, but have found that ongoing attention to self-care and self-expression is extremely valuable both to the self and to others.  This world can sometimes feel overwhelming, yet with a certain focus it can also be quite peaceful and meaningful.  I’m excited to share my attempts to continually find and maintain such focus.  My goal is to be practical, thoughtful and humorous.  I’m sure I sometimes fall short, but hey- it’s good to have goals.  That’s why this is a blog about mindfulness and silliness: mindfulness to explore practices to stay grounded with the present and silliness to make sure I don’t take things too seriously.

    I like the notion of a “fiercer” life, thanks for sharing that.
