I had the pleasure of seeing one of my students yesterday, Tiye, who is now up at the middle school. She was picking up her younger sister from school and came right over to me with a big smile on her face. She told me how she still remembers to use her breath to come back to the present moment when she’s feeling stressed. Tiye holds the record for taking our Morning Mindfulness classes – four sessions in a row.
I’ve seen Tiye’s confidence grow over those two years and now it seems that she can jump hurdles that would stop most of us adults. Just seeing her enthusiasm smile made me smile, proof that kindness is truly contagious.
