My name is Lisa Redl and I am a wife, mother to two young boys and a caregiver to my husband’s 96-year-old German Omi.
In my 14 years of broadcasting, the top ten most valuable lessons I have learned through the interviews I have done (in no particular order) are
Family always comes first. One of the biggest regrets of the people I have interviewed has been not spending quality time with their loved ones, especially their children, only to realize it when it’s too late.
Being able to provide for yourself is extremely important, but the love and obsession with money and material things is a dark road that leads to nothing.
What you own ends up owning you.
There is room for everyone. Girls compete with each other, women empower one another. Same goes for men. You don’t have to step on others to get to the top. Follow the Bushido code.
You’re never too old to follow your dreams.
People are quick to believe the bad things they hear about good people. Be good anyways.
People are responsible for their actions, but we are always responsible for our reactions.
When people are squeezed, their truths are revealed.
Vulnerability is a strength, not a weakness. You can either be a victim to your story or use it as the fire to ignite your true life’s passion. It’s always a choice.
What you give always comes back to you if it’s from the right place. Whether it’s money, your time or material things.
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who matter don’t mind and those that matter don’t mind” – Dr Seuss.
Unless what you’re saying is terrible. Lol.
The best gift we can give others is the gift of being ourselves.
Sharing our stories and lives, and not just through the filtered lens of Instagram and social media, is what helps us grow, learn and connect with one another.
Everybody has a story and I hope one day I can help you share yours.
On top of weekly podcasts by myself and other contributors, I will also be posting a daily blog or vlog, sharing good news, inspiring music, people and businesses in the Okanagan and beyond.
I don’t care what side of the political spectrum you are, your religious background, your race, ethnicity or social class…
