    In this episode, Jill will share how she pushed herself to the limit before the year ended. She was so busy, she barely had time to rest and relax. Therefore, she decided to focus on herself as 2023 starts. 
    ----more----

    ----more----
    For Jill, choosing herself is aligned with her motto of quality over quantity in everything she does. She doesn’t want to put out lacklustre content just for the sake of it.

    Now, Jill is back, and she shares her new objectives for this year.

    14. Gratitude

    14. Gratitude

    How often do you give thanks for all the blessings in your life? Or in what ways do you give thanks?
    ----more----
    Sometimes we overlook the amazing things happening in our lives because of the not-so-good things. That’s why Jill shares how being intentionally grateful will change your life the same way it changed hers.
    ----more----
    In this episode, she shares how she practices gratitude on a daily basis. Of course, it’s not an overnight fix. Jill emphasizes the importance of being intentional with making time to be grateful for the things in our lives through journaling, affirmations, etc. There’s no one-size fits all approach, but surely being more grateful will help you realign your perspective into a more positive outlook in life.
    ----more----
    Moreover, Jill shares how gratitude should also be shared. We don’t know everyone’s struggle, and being nice is the least we can do. Who knows, maybe that one compliment can make a person’s day.
    ----more----
    Listen to this episode and be more grateful each day!

    12. The Making of Driving While Indigenous

    Today, we'll talk about the amazing event that happened on December 2, 2022 – Driving While Indigenous. This was an event where people were able to share success concepts, inspire and be inspired by our own Indigenous success stories.

    If you're an avid listener, some of our guests were a part of the event. Jessica Dumas, Ted Williams, Greg Personius, and The Resilience were all there to share a common cause. The event's main goal was to motivate indigenous people to reach their dreams.
    ----more----
    Jill shares all about what happened during the event and how the event came to fruition in this podcast episode. She emphasized how this event was a product of years of hard work and a lot of belief.
