In Rachpal's words:
"What is A Dash of Spice – the magazine? I’ve had this line in my head for the longest time. Let’s face it, ladies, life is filled with changes. We all go through them. From the joyous ones like marriage, parenthood, to the uncertain ones like health scares, divorce even.
Most of us go through changes without even noticing. Some of us get scared and perhaps even try to run and hide. Some get stressed and dive into depression. Change is inevitable; it’s how we adapt to the change that matters.
Big or small, life is filled with transitions. Whatever we may be going through, good, bad or ugly, it doesn’t mean we stop living. It doesn’t mean we succumb to the change and let life carry us along for the ride. It also doesn’t mean we are alone in all of this. No. We got to learn to embrace these transitions.

Rachpal started her magazine "A Dash of Spice" in September. Currently it is free to subscribe to
In 2006 when Rachpal first started coaching, women came to her with different stories, but the same plot: There was a problem, usually involving someone and as they tried to help the other person their own needs were pushed back. Sometimes it was a child, the husband, the parent or the boss. It was always other needs - them first, then self.
Rachpal felt that she was no different to these women and that she could relate to them. Like them, she was giving more than she was receiving. She felt frustrated and her relationships and work would suffer.
One day she decided that this must change and she thought she would experiment by putting herself first. She let go of the belief that had been so deeply emmeshed.
Women forget that looking after themselves is crucial before one can look after others. When you are sad and frustrated, there is absolutely no way that you can give your love, care and concern to others without feeling a tinge of resentment.
So no, it is not selfish to put yourself first. You are doing everyone a favour when you don't hold them accountable for your misery.
