My core beliefs became my survival skills or my resilience, the more common term used now.
I start and end each day with gratitude for my personal assets, none that have a monetary value. I model and mentor simple hardworking values, first for myself, family, friends, co-workers but more importantly strangers for continuous learning and growth together. This is a community and I believe we need to be more caring and neighbourly. The community needs to be the catchment and embrace for – what and who is: and what and who is to follow – our next generation. Simply saying hello, good morning or genuinely asking how someone is, then to stop and listen to their response has a positive, profound impact that takes very little effort.
