September Is Mindfulness Month! This month’s theme is all about mindfulness. For me, mindfulness is simply the practice of bringing yourself into the present moment. Building Community My team & I have been cooking up something extra special for our community.

This month’s theme is all about self-love and compassion. “How you love yourself is how you teach others to love you.” – Rupi Kaur. When I think about self-love, I see a lot of articles & blogs about self-care, pampering yourself and loving yourself first before you can love someone else,

“Change can be so constant you don’t even feel the difference until there is one. It can be so slow that you don’t even notice that your life is better or worse, until it is. Or it can just blow you away, make you something different in an instant.” – Life

“Our dilemma is that we hate change and love it at the same time; what we really want is for things to remain the same but get better.” -Sydney J. Harris We fear change because we can’t always control the outcome. We love it when it means a positive, predictable outcome.
