    Thank you for the interview and the opportunity for Arvind to share his wisdom. I learned a lot from him today. :-)

  2. Debbie M. says

    Very inspiring interview, I agree why be bothered with the little things. I’ve always taught my children and tried to pass along to my friends and family this ” pick your battles and decide which ones are worth your time and effort” an email or un-returned phone call aren’t worth it. 

    Children do love unconditionally, I remember when I was teaching preschool how much love my class gave. 

    Wonderful interview, thank you both for reminding these points.

      Debbie, as you get clear about what’s really important – but maybe one doesn’t need to “pick any battles”. Life is what it is and sometimes even by seeing something as a “battle” makes it more entrenched and harder to deal with.

      So just go with the flow – like children do:-)

      Ansh, indeed we must smile unconditionally. People can always tell when our smile is forced and fake. Worst is to smirk!

      Glad you found the interview inspiring. Now just remember to apply some of the things we discussed – and of course keep smiling :-)

    The little things always get in the way of loving and caring. It just is all so unnecessary when you truly think about it. Picking your battles is how I explain it to young mothers with their toddlers. It is much more important that your child plays well with other children than it is for him to keep his face clean while doing so. Mine were always dirty when playing. I truly believe the things you were saying very inspirational thank you Corrine for the wonderful interview  and thank you Arvind for sharing your wisdom.

    • Arvind Devalia says

       Jan, thanks for your positive feedback. Yes, forget the little things and focus on what’s really important in life – such as allowing your children to be and blossom in their own beautiful way:-).

    What makes this interview special is the honesty in which Arvind has answered his questions and the manner in which Corrine has asked open ended questions.

    I have learned the art of questioning from this interview…

    I wish people go to archives and read all posts to get the full essence of your blog..
