Today I'm going to be talking about "Small Things". I believe that a happy, successful and fulfilling life is built upon many tiny moments of compassion and connection. Grand gestures are fabulous if you can afford them - but often they end up feeling a little hollow and "short-cutty". Far better in my opinion to build a legacy that is meaningful and solidly built upon all of the little, hardly any effort at all, moments that can make your life and the lives of others around you so much better.

Genuine Chat with Gina: today I want to look at LOVE. I'm not just talking about the pink and romantic stuff either folks.

ENGAGING WITH HOPE & OPTIMISM. The wonderful Michael Neill (of Caffeine for the Soul fame) has a great quote on this; "Hope is the magic elixir that energizes dreams, fuels possibilities, and lets you live beyond the limits of your habitual thinking." So what is your take on the discipline of HOPE?
Are You Harming by Praising Too Much? Unconditional Positive Regard is spoken about by therapists and is something all parents are encouraged to do if they are to bring up well-balanced, confident children. But what does this mean day-to-day and is it possible to over-praise?
Many people can cite something that their parent(s) did or do that causes them an emotional issue, large or small. But whilst awareness is valuable, how long is "reasonable" to keep blaming other people for your life issues now?
Redefine your Personal Power - we're going to revisit and rethink our views on our personal power and how it can be used by us to create happier, more successful and fulfilled lives. What does your individual power feel like and what do you feel about the power of the collective?
Think back to this time last year, when the new year was brand new and you sat making your resolutions and intentions. What were your thoughts and plans? Now where are you?
Today Gina and her good-friend and fellow international bestselling author, Rachel Davidson, chat through wanting to belong somewhere, to feel part of something is a powerful motivator for all of us. But then so is the desire to be true to our individual path's. So how do one balance these two seemingly opposed goals? Gina has got some excellent thoughts on the topic.
