Blessed are the Flexible: Achieving Work-Life Balance

Thursday, Sept. 17th, 10-11am


Workshop Details:
Life is hard. Some days, it is difficult to look past the negativity around us to remember the value behind what we do. When life gets too hard, when work is feeling like more of a burden than a passion, it is important to take a pause and fill our own cups before pouring into others’ lives. Our hope is that, upon completing this workshop, you feel filled to the brim with the knowledge that you are not alone, ready to start every day and every task with a smile and a full heart, leaning into your cup for support.
