What do you tell a bunch of girls on the cusp of adulthood?
…I had the bittersweet task of wishing the girls at the shelter goodbye for good. Basically, these girls come from troubled homes and I am there to teach them yoga and mindfulness. Having to say goodbye to them was very difficult.
I decided to write what I told them and how I felt about them in my recent column in the Sun.
The second thing I felt that was important was that happiness does not equal having loads of money. Again, from observing those around me, many people have the perception that the more money they have, the happier they will be. Money can buy things that momentarily take your mind off things, and perhaps in that way, make you happy. Your new gadget, car, clothes and toys might give you a distraction. But if you are unhappy, the unhappiness is within. No amount of money can take that away.
What would you tell your children if you never saw them again?
