Nuggets of Wisdom from Kruti:

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched; they must be felt with the heart.” – Hellen Keller.

“I just realized that I love people. I just thought, ‘I need to be myself and the only way I can do that is by not comparing myself to others and accept me for me.'”

“Self love is so important. At the end of the day, if you don’t take time for yourself, everyone else is going to be affected. It comes down to, you have to make time, even if it’s just 10 minutes to yourself. Be in a room by yourself, breathing. Go on a walk all by yourself. Read a book. Any guilty pleasure that you may have.”

What does it mean to be a Vibrant Happy Woman?

“Being a part of the Vibrant Happy Women Club and connecting with all the amazing women there.”

Being a vibrant happy woman is all about finding my tribe of women and continuing to grow my tribe of happy women for years to come.”

A Challenge from Kruti:

“Make a list of all the things causing stress or all the things of things that inspire you. When you put it on paper there’s some type of relief that comes from being able to put it all out on paper. Try it; it will definitely make you feel better.”
