Hands Free Mama

October 26, 2015

I first came across Hands Free Mama and her journey to slow down in a post called, The Day I Stopped Saying Hurry Up. Her words hit like a ton of bricks:

“When you’re living a distracted life, every minute must be accounted for. You feel like you must be checking something off the list, staring at a screen, or rushing off to the next destination. And no matter how many ways you divide your time and attention, no matter how many duties you try and multi-task, there’s never enough time in the day to catch up.”

Now I’m reading her book, Hands Free Mama: A Guide to Putting Down the Phone, Burning the To-Do List, and Letting Go of Perfection to Grasp What Really Matters! which gives simple ways to find balance in a media-saturated, perfection-obsessed world and the joy that is discovered when you open your heart – and your hands – to the possibilities of each blessed moment.

This book is a gift to any mother and I had it share it with you!

    I came across that post when I was pregnant with my son and it really resonated with me. Such a good reminder! I’ll check out her book.

    I’m so happy that women are finally realizing that what matters is that we women enjoy WHO WE ARE, not that we enjoy crossing tasks off a list. Society has given us this idea that a woman’s worth is in her tasks, but now we’re realizing that a woman has incredible worth because of her extraordinary feminine strengths and her wisdom born of the heart and soul. ๐Ÿ™‚
