April Showered Us so May Could Flower Us



April has been one for the books. On top of all the pollen that has literally taken over everything, work has amped up, kids (if you have them) have been on ten-thousand and it seems like everything in between has been happening and trying to stop us from living in our purpose. Literally SHOWERED with multiple things back to back to back. Just as the monotony of daily life starts to set in, here comes the wrench to flip life upside down and all around, causing you to almost be on the verge of a breakdown....


But you must keep going and growing. Learning to adapt to life and roll with the punches is what makes us who we are. Imagine if the flowers and trees had not endured the countless storms and finicky weather only to not bloom and be dull and raggedy. Now that May has come, it is time to bloom and show everyone how beautiful hard work can be. Reap the benefits of your work this month and know that you deserve it. Oh and shout out to the ones who are still working to bloom. Just know it will be both beautiful and amazing, just like you.


Below are a host of events, classes, jobs and more! Check them out and share with those you feel would be interested.
