Grey Matters Now Episode 11 : Sounds, Seeds And Steeping Mindfulness

According to Psychology Today, the definition of mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present.

All-One!

Am I the only one, am I a bad parent, should I have seen this coming, who can I share this with, who can I talk to that won’t judge us, how do I handle this, where can we go for help…?
