Christy Matta, M.A.

Have you ever been told you need to "clear your head" or "get rid of all the clutter"? For many, including myself, the idea of sitting quietly with an empty mind seems impossible. If fact, this idea is often a barrier to any attempts to meditate or try mindfulness exercises.

Real love is deep and eternal. Real love is the power in every breath and the stimulant for all your senses. Real love is the force that moves you to do even the silly things, like buying gifts, dressing up and making special plans.

Given how much time I spend wandering around consumed by how stellar life will be once I lose the last five pregnancy pounds, get my book written, get the baby to sleep through the night, that to realize quite suddenly that I am happy right now is miraculous. It stops me in my tracks.
