Small Steps to Big Changes:
We can’t change how and when things happen but we can control how we react to the unexpected or what others do and say. The pandemic has affected folks in so many unique ways. It has changed the way we live and see the world. This program gives us a chance to talk about the past two years, and what we need to do to move positively into the future. We then take part in some common sense exercises to see how we react to everyday situations. The goal is to bring more calm and peace to a world that has been shaken by events that are out of our control.
