Ashlee is Mama of one darling boy. A 28 week early bird, now 1 and some change, doing beautifully. She lives near Chicago with her sweetheart husband and French Bulldog. She's a thinker not afraid to get her silly on. Babywearer, veggie queen, photography nut. Before the domestic days Ashlee was pursuing a future in developmental psychology but has happily shifted gears in favor of staying at home and couldn't imagine doing anything else. In her free time (ha!) you can find her whipping up babyslings, holding down the fort at Mama Speaks and spotlighting as an Itsy Bitsy Yoga Instructor.

My Resolution - Stillness

"Stillness is not the absence or negation of energy, life, or movement. Stillness is dynamic. It is unconflicted movement, life in harmony with itself, skill in action. It can be experienced whenever there is total, uninhibited, unconflicted participation in the in the moment you are in-when you are wholeheartedly present with whatever you are doing"
-Erich Schiffmann
"Yoga, The Spirit and Practice of Moving into Stillness"

This year, I will slow down. I will be present in each moment. Fully present. Fully aware in whatever I do. Wholeheartedly immersed in whatever it is. This means doing the impossible, limiting multi-tasking, keeping but one ball in the air at a time - at a time when I am stretched in more directions than ever before. It will be worth it. Time gets so fragmented and we often miss so much of the little stuff in trying to do it all. I don't want to miss a thing. None of the important stuff anyway...

Slow down. Be still. Be present.

    Yes, a good thing. I am making a priority to rid the "static" in our home and bring us back to simple stillness. Already I am noticing a calmness. It is a good reminder, Be still and know... top

    Wow! I'd love just 30 min. of stillness! I think it's something we all could use in our lives. The book I was talking about before- is The New Brith Order Book by Kevin Lehman. It's great! It helps you understand yourself and your kids! top

    Wow. That's a wonderful resolution! We as women are so bad at juggling so much that we miss all the wonderful moments in life. I think this is awesome. top
