This is likely the most honest description of what genuine mindfulness means for our everyday lives that you will ever read. This is the story of a mother who lays out her struggles as an individual, a wife, and a parent in a manner that causes us to laugh and cry with her—and simultaneously admire her—as she tells of her messy journey and shows us what it really means to be mindful. There’s no perfectionism here, no “getting there,” and certainly no “arriving,” just invaluable insight and wisdom concerning how an ordinary person can begin living in an extraordinary manner.
