Our theme for this month is EMPOWERMENT.
After this recent period of turbulence and uncertainty, this month we will be looking at the positives, recognising that although there are many things out of our control, we do have power over our bit of the world. Affirmations can have a positive effect on us by challenging negative or unhelpful thoughts, and to encourage positive changes in our life.
In this task, we will be playing with shape, colour and space to create a positive affirmation to be displayed somewhere prominent, or maybe as a gift to a friend or neighbour who might appreciate some words of encouragement.
“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” Maya Angelou
