What a Year!

While 2020 turned into our most challenging ever, let's look at all that was learned! SoulJours are those who have faced challenge and turned it into an opportunity, a gift, the light they share with the world. There was more down time than ever...no commuting to work, no traffic, no going out with friends, no eating at restaurants, no concerts, no museums. Rather than dwell in the "no" let's look at the "yes" that transpired:
Yes to family!
Yes to cooking!
Yes to nature and all its WONDER!
Yes to reading!
Yes to yoga & being able to take courses from master teachers around the globe from the comforts of home (thank you Zoom).
Yes to journaling! (do you have one of our beautiful vegan leather journal made from apple scraps?).
Yes to online school and having freedom to travel!
Yes to playing a LOT of games!
Yes to thinking outside the box!
Yes to the stock market on a tear!
Yes to realizing that living in cities isn't necessary for many!
Yes to purging our houses of clutter!
