Meet Eleni! Isn’t she a doll? She’s beautiful no doubt, but her heart and soul are what makes her so special. She has been a friend a mine for some time now, and she is the real deal. Her heart is so genuine!!! She loves to encourage other women and she is happy to share her insight on what it means to live for the most with us! I’m so happy to have her here!
Eleni lives in Canada with her husband and their adorable baby, Harlow. You can find her on her blog CONVEY THE MOMENT, where she writes, photographs, and shares about life, style, and of course “moments” She believes deeply that each moment matters in life and she pursues this belief in everything she does. She is always an inspiration to me and I know you’ll appreciate her perspective as well.
So clear your mind of distraction friends and let’s talk…
“being in the moment”
Why is it important to you to be “living for the most?”
My personal mission is to live every single day. It’s so easy to get distracted by all the chaos in life, but it’s my everyday mission to slow down and live. I want to remember Harlow this small as she will never be this tiny ever again. I want to lay my head down at the end of everyday knowing I gave it my all… Focused less on others and what they are doing or how they are living life and more on us. I want to use my extra time to make others lives richer by giving back when I can and offering my heart every chance I get.
How are you accomplishing this right where you are?
I think the best way I’m accomplishing this is by staying off of social media as much as I can, getting out and living to LIVE, not to live to say I did. In this season of my life I find it SO important to take everyday for what it is. The struggles, the beauties, the gifts. To me being on track means I lived each day with intention and purpose and that guides my decisions and life choices. It’s really a strong guiding point.
What is a good idea, tool, or resource that’s helping you in either family life, home, or womanhood?
I love reading inspiring quotes to remind me of my intentions. It helps me be a better wife, mother, and human when I’m living a life without worry. Definitely a huge part of my day.
What is a favorite book or quote that has offered you knowledge or inspiration?
“live less out of a habit and more out of intent”
What advice would you give your younger self?
To not worry about the unnecessary. That life has a way of working itself out and everything happens for a reason. Worrying is a waste of an emotion, though sometimes it is inevitable, it is often unnecessary. It will not change the outcome, in fact it’ll often only make the situation worse than it must be. To me, that’s important. I wish I could have spent less time worrying.
A big thanks to Eleni for taking the time for this interview, and thank YOU for reading!
