LET ME ASK YOU!
And yes YOU, don’t look over your shoulder, I’m talking to you, the you that’s reading this RIGHT NOW.
Now that’s a complex question, isn’t it? Are you happy? Perhaps you are shrugging and replying, “I guess so,” or “Happy enough.”
Happy enough won’t cut it! Folks, you have one life, (#notadressrehearsal) so if you can’t answer this question with a resounding #HECKYEAH, then you are in the right spot.
This site is for you, this site is for me, and we are in this together. Who wants to create a life they love?
Our life unfolds only in moments, when we are not present we miss these moments, we miss our lives. And tuning into our lives, now that’s a happiness guarantee.
And Ultimately That’s What Mindfulmazing Is All About — Creating A Happy Life. For You, And For Your Kids
I’m Tina, Welcome to Mindfulmazing
Just like you, I want to be happy. And just like you, I’m struggling with how to do that. I wear a lot of different hats, blogger, mom, wife, sister, friend, and I have a regular full-time job too. It’s easy to get caught up in the busyness of it all and forget that this is your life right now.
My mission here at MM is to provide resources to help you raise mindful, compassionate, resilient kids and share what I’ve done to help eliminate stress and overwhelm in hopes that other moms can CRUSH THE CHAOS too.
10 years ago, I was searching for happiness (I’d spent my entire life up to that point in hot pursuit of this elusive state of being, without finding it).
I bounced from one tumultuous relationship to another, frivolously spent all my money, and although seemingly happy on the outside, was lost, confused and alone on the inside.
Desperate to find peace, I even jetted off to Australia and spent six months living in a van. But when that left me even more confused and unhappy, I knew that something had to change.
The more I tried to fill my inner void with stuff, travelling and even men, the more unsatisfied I felt.
Then, a decade ago, I stumbled into a mindfulness/meditation center in an attempt to find peace and had my first A-Ha moment. And then another, and another.
Long story short, first, I realized I needed to tune into my life. I was missing my life. I learned how to do this.
Mindfulness also taught me that happiness can not be found in outer objects, (and I know this belongs in a cheesy $1,000 buy my happiness course tagline,) but it’s true, and happiness is inside you already.
Second, and even more importantly, I discovered how to get to that place inside of myself. I discovered the true source of happiness.
I thought I had it all figured out (insert smug face here), when life threw me the biggest challenge I’d yet to face. The birth of my very “spirited” son who has high-functioning-autism. Life became confusing, scary, challenging, and again I found myself spiraling into the abyss of negativity and overwhelm.
I desperately wanted to be a better mother, so I took a stand against my mind. Today, (despite life’s challenges) I’m confident, happy, able to manage stress, and what’s really exciting is I’ve also been practicing mindfulness with my son for over a year with astounding results. (And I’ll teach you how to do that too!)
A quick insider look: To conquer my anxiety I designed, developed and created a 3-month guided anxiety journal. (You can crush you worries too!) I created a mindfulness for kids activity guide, designed many free printables just for you mom, along with other exciting resources which you’ll learn about if you stick around.
This blog is for you, and it’s all about helping you discover your own true source of happiness and in turn (and by osmosis) instilling that mindset into your kids.
