1) Where do you find your moments of positivity?
I find myself humbled by natures simplicity, in many ways helping me understand my true meaning here on this earth, sometimes I just have to listen, in stillness and in silence.

2) What do you do to "claim your moment"?
If I can be a service to others and in some way, be a part of something greater than myself, that's when I can honestly say that I "claim" my moment. It is through ACTION that I am most productive, and feel most motivated in creating a change, a positive impact.
