Parenting as a practice
What do you practice?
Yoga? Basketball? Piano?
prac·tice - /ˈpraktəs/
perform (an activity) or exercise (a skill) repeatedly or regularly in order to improve or maintain one's proficiency.
carry out or perform (a particular activity, method, or custom) habitually or regularly.
There’s a comfort in performing the rituals around practicing. The nature of our practices allows us to put our defences down, opening up to new possibilities.
Parenting is a practice.
Parenting is a regular performance of patience and compromise and a ritual of compassion and generosity.
And there is liberation from perfection when it comes to viewing parenting as a practice.
For some time now I’ve wanted to create a free space to hone this practice weekly as a community and you know what? We did it! Mindful Mondays launched last week over at Bueno Market, and I think we’ve created something really special!
As a little thank you for being on this conscious family journey with me (especially during this season of abundance, and gratitude), I wanted to share our first-ever Mindful Mondays with you here. And if you love it, please sign up to get your very own weekly parenting as a practice exercise email.
