Namaste (nah/mas/tay); is a common greeting and blessing used throughout India, often accompanied by a slight bow with the individual’s palms together. Namaste acknowledges and honors the soul in one by the soul in another. In Sanskrit, it is translated to mean, “I bow to you.”
Momaste (mom/mas/tay); a greeting between mothers which is loosely translated to mean, “the mom in me bows to the mom in you.” (says me!)
Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by! Momaste is a place where I share my process of becoming more mindful in a maelstrom of a modern world, while offering encouragement, love, and respect for other moms. I am a mom to two amazing and complicated souls, who challenge and teach me every day. Professionally speaking, I work as a clinical social worker, doing child and family therapy with a very high-risk population. The intersection of my private and professional lives makes life very dynamic.
My favorite topics to write about are breast feeding, family, my struggles as a working mom, and moving towards self acceptance. I also find my way into the occasional poem.
I try to write at least once or twice a week, but bear with me! I am a full-time, working mother of two, and sometimes life gets a little hectic, necessitating a brief hiatus here or there.
Please feel free to comment on my posts. I love hearing from readers, moms, and other bloggers! I try my best to reply to all comments, and encourage lively discussion, as long as it is supportive and respectful.
You can also find me on Facebook at Momasteblog and follow me on Twitter @momasteblog. You are welcome to share and/or reblog for good karma!

Momaste to you and have a great day!
