Life can be so beautiful, if we allow it.
Last week, I stood in front of about 1,200 students and 80 or so teachers and taught the foundations of mindfulness, meditation and emotional resilience. There is a profound ease that comes with working with minds that are not yet conditioned to fear the unknown, stuck in identity crisis and carrying around decades of baggage #adultlife.
Youth comes with a purity that we often lose as we begin to learn what it is to “be enough” and we forget what’s truly important. I might have been the one up the front delivering the words and wisdom, but those students, in their openness, reflected back to me what the most important parts of life are.
So, thanks 1,200 students, for reminding us what’s important.
