i just wanted to send you this –

self esteem improves with meditation

my daughter made it and put it up on her bedroom door.  Before i started doing meditation with her she was anxious and a little worrier. She has been keeping a gratitude journal and i was delighted to see this going up because before she wouldn’t have recognised all her great traits (before she started being mindful), no matter how many times she was told.  It really has been great for our family. This has given me a whole different outlook on things and coping strategies for myself.” KM
