Although the Buddha advises us to understand the causes and conditions of our own dukkha, rather than conveniently cover them up with denial, we can still, to a considerable degree, control how much dukkha we experience. In any moment we do have a choice in where to place our attention, as Kim shares: My mantra, uttered about a thousand times a day, has been Thich Nhat Hanh’s ‘breathing in I calm myself, breathing out I smile’. By the time I’m at the smile part, I’m feeling a little better. I have a lot on my plate right now: two small kids and a husband with a chronic illness.

We are always in the present moment, so may as well pay attention to it. We are in a new place, if we could only see this with a Beginner’s Mind. The world we inhabit is not perfect, and will inevitably present us with times of turbulence and chaos. Yet it is always possible to shift or enlarge our perspective. We are always with our breath, and paying attention to it anchors us in the present. Our presence is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children for they will grow up knowing they are noticed, important and loved.

We need to acknowledge the value of consciously setting aside time each day—possibly only a few grabbed moments—to take delight in our children. We work so hard to raise them, it is the least we can do for ourselves. Of course, I can only set aside this time if I surrender to the fact that the house is not yet tidy or that dinner might be delayed or that I will not be able to make all those phone calls. ’ I hope that my boys might one day say this of me and notice that their most basic needs for attention came before the housework, the schedule and the phone calls.
