**VIRTUAL** Completing the Year. Creating the Year.

Reviewing the past year can feel daunting! With guidance and an open heart, however, taking a closer look can actually help us see more clearly our accomplishments and the gifts we received.


Try living one day without any unhealthy thoughts. It may be very difficult, but try another day, until it becomes habitual, and life will move in the direction of becoming healthy, vital, and alive.
- Norman Vincent Peale
