15 May The Takeaway
“Ok campers, rise and shine…”
While it might still feel like we’re all reliving the same day , (Groundhog Day, right?), change is everywhere. We’ve embraced new ways to connect, engage and adapt to the times that we’re going through. Whether it’s working remotely and meeting people virtually, realizing that walking without a destination is amazing, learning new things like how to grow micro greens and sprouts in a condo kitchen (like yours truly) or baking sourdough in our own homes. The takeaway is that no matter how big or small, as long as you’re engaged, a small pivot can result in big changes.
