BE POSITIVE – whats stopping you?
We know that having a positive outlook makes our day and life run more smoothly. However being able to maintain a positive focus when we are challenged can be difficult. Over these three weeks we will use the wisdom of Buddha’s teachings to help us begin to change our attitude in our daily life.
