I applaud Karla for sharing her personal story so honestly. It surely takes courage to share what she did with us today. I want to re-emphasize what Karla said that she is sharing her story because we struggle with what to do in those deep dark moments. She wants people to know that there is possibility, if you are struggling know to reach out and get some help. Get help from whoever you are close to and also call the national suicide prevention lifeline in the US. The # for which is 800 273 8255 and always remember that you are not alone.

I also want to reiterate Karla’s thoughtful definition of Optimism. Karla says optimism means that permanently and generally life is good and temporarily and specifically we face challenge. And so it's not necessarily about always being happy or always being positive. It's really about understanding that there's a flow. Karla shared many tips on how she moved from hopelessness to a full transformation of herself. She used many self care routines which included gratitude, journaling, affirmations, meditation but her final message is that Self Love and Optimism will carry us through this journey of life and that we always have a choice!

I will bring you the next episode of Sharing Life Lessons next Wednesday. Until then, 'Be happy, be safe and be well'.
