    Here goes, Kathy! I hope this is not too esoteric, but I’ve found quiet focus one of the toughest things to learn, so the earlier one does, so much the better. Thank you for the opportunity and for all that you do!

    “You are blessed with so much talent; there’s so much you can
    do. But talent that is not channeled is easily frittered away; energy that is
    not focused can implode. Spend even just a few minutes a day focusing your
    energy on what is most important to you. Concentrate on it every day. Learn to
    quiet your mind and listen to your gut. It’s not easy, but it will come if you
    practice quiet focus: simply focusing very quietly on what is most important. Before you know it, the universe will start showing you the way.”

      This is so true, Shonali, and I am waiting for the studies in neuroplasticity showing us how haywire we’ve gone with our devices. This is truly a skill to be practiced, for so many reasons. A survival skill, for ourselves. A skill for the workforce, for the future. And….as you mentioned, to bring out our talent…to focus on what is most important to us. It’s so easy to react..is it not? A wonderful reminder. Thank you Shonali.

    My advice is this: you will spend years finding, developing
    and appreciating your strengths, and this is great. But do not forget to
    recognise your weaknesses, too. Why is it important to do this? Well, for many
    reasons! Here are just a few:

    - If you see yourself as you really are, then you will not waste your time
    pursuing something that you do not enjoy, and are not good at.

    - If you know you are weak in an area, then learn to ask for help with it.
    Asking for help is NOT a sign of weakness – it’s about knowing yourself, having
    confidence in what you can do while acknowledging what you can’t, and
    respecting the gifts and strengths of others.

    - If you ask for help, you will build relationships (both personal and
    professional) with people who see the world differently than you do, who have
    different backgrounds and experiences. You will learn so much from people who
    have strengths that you do not… so grab those chances to learn!

    So don’t fear or resent your weaknesses – instead, get to know them, ask for
    help from others, and then learn from their strengths. In essence, your weaknesses can teach you so much about yourself, others, and your world. Take some time to think about where you need help or guidance – and then find a mentor, role model, or teacher… embrace your weaknesses!

    My advice to a young woman would be this:

    Be kind to people. Treat them the way they want to be treated, not the way you may think is best.

    Take great care who you choose to be friends with – who are friends are helps determine so much about our lives. Some become a kind of chosen addendum to your family. Our peer groups is also thought to affect where we end up in life. So don’t just accept that the people around you or the people you grew up with are the best people to take with you on life’s journey.

    Be great. Most obstacles are illusions of our own makings, and the ones that are left have a way over, around or through. Be great. The world yearns for the special thing that makes you legendary. So be it. Be you as loudly as you can. This is not a dress rehearsal, and you never know when your last performance will be.

    You are loved. If you happen to be in a place where you can’t find it outside yourself, you can look in a mirror and see it in your own eyes. Be that love and more love will come to you, in all its many splendid forms.

    And take care of yourself first. If you wait until you’re drowning you can never save anyone else, you can only take them down with you. So if you want to live a life of service even in the smallest way, make sure you’re at the very least okay before you attend to everyone else.

    Have grace with yourself and others
    Take pride in your efforts, and own your errors
    Understand decisions and choices come from our head…what are the rules/expectations; our heart…compassion for all humans;…and gut…instinct, whenever unsure listen to your gut.
    In all relationships…friends, partners…relative consider 1st not what someone else is giving, but what you have to offer to the relationship and engage sincerely.
    Finances is one area many people struggling with and it can bury you emotionally …learn, be aware and practice good management skills…noone is entilted to anything they have not earned themselves…none owes you anything…you owe yourself.
    Lastly, “Be the change you want to see in the world” Gandhi
