I “find my feet”....being present in this moment, not future tripping, is hugely beneficial for me. And a daily gratitude list. Helps me stay positive 

- Lisa Stowe


Focusing on inner strength brings out physical strength automatically. Being open to all kinds of emotions without giving them a “good” or “bad” label helps me to learn about inner self. Processing emotions the right way is the key to freedom.

Managing my state, paying attention to what my heart says, being in Nature

- Roger Wyer


1. I am beginning to ‘let go’. Of my limiting beliefs and unfounded fears.

2. Doing all I can to share what I know to help others who may be struggling on the path I’ve traveled before. Care creates strength.

3. Stepping up way beyond my own self, family, firm to support my community, neighbours and network. Any which way. That makes me feel strong.

4. Doing a course on Positive Intelligence to learn tools, tips and tricks to keep myself steady on course to/of positivity.

5. Hanging out with people who are optimistic, talk of courage, hope and resilience. Energy is contagious.

6. Saying I believe in myself zillion times a day!

I am grateful for my ability to breathe normally, I am grateful for being blessed with so many resources to live my life, I am grateful for my profession which allows me to bring positive impact and shifts in the lives of women and the list goes on. But today I want to be grateful to my maid Vidya who came to work in spite of this weather. I salute her sincerity.

Responses for How can I stay true to my Personal Values?

By self-observation... I do this by checking in on my values of - Love, Abundance, Respect, Resilience, Integrity

I stay true to my personal values by believing that nothing is worth compromising them, ever! By knowing that not staying true to them will haunt me forever. By acknowledging them to myself often. By letting all know what they mean to me and most of all by living them!

By making them aware that you are there for them, being there for them when they turn to you and seeking their willingness to the solutions/support you offer.

Listen. Be available to them. Move with their flow,their speed. Support their grieving their way. Share what I have that could help them (network, work, time, opportunities, training...) etc Don’t rush.

Be kind and supportive. Try to listen and not just offer up advice.
