“In my work, I have found that people who have a strong sense of worthiness and belonging live rich and full lives, and are able to pass those internal beliefs on to their children. Unfortunately most of us lose that sense of self -love early in life and do not believe that we have the time, energy, or resources to rediscover it. One of the many gifts of parenthood is that the impending birth of a child can re-awaken the desire to fulfill our highest potential.”
