Greetings Dear Friends,

 For all of us, Covid lasted longer than I think any of us expected. Back when my kids school announced they wouldn’t be going back for the remainder of the school year, I thought it would be an extra long summer and by fall things would be normal…..obviously not!  Here we are, 2 years later, still dealing with the many changes in lifestyle it has created- many of us juggling online schooling, childcare and work.  This has created many challenges, mentally, physically, emotionally- It is so important now to make sure we are being patient with ourselves and those around us and allowing ourselves time for “self-care”.  


So why not take advantage of this new "normal"?  If you havent yet, maybe now is the time to treat yourself a REBOOT! A REFRESH! Whether you need it due to Covid or just reevaluating your priorities and dreams, anytime is a great time to allow yourself some personal exploration to see where you want to go next.


 Are you job hunting?  Take this time to hone in some skills and fine tune your resume.  Looking to network and grow your community?  Now is a great time to dig into online research and find a new community that will expand your reach.
