Our attention is always on something, whether that thing is something nourishing and uplifting for us, or if its depleting for us. We've each been shaped by our experiences and our social environments to pay attention to specific information from our environment - often information that just confirms beliefs we already hold - but when we begin to get curious (i.e. mindful) of where our attention goes we can begin making more conscious choices about what we consume from the world around us. Without realizing it, this is a path to liberation, because liberating our perception is to inhabit our power to shape our experiences. And that matters to me, personally, and as a mom.
