Affirmations are statements of truth. They are often used to encourage and reinforce positive thinking to create positive outcomes.
They can be expressed in a statement seeing oneself reaching a desired goal, e.g., “I will proudly walk across the stage to accept my diploma,” or a statement of encouragement about oneself, e.g., “There is no one better to be than myself.” Writing our affirmations and revisiting them in a journal helps us to reinforce them.
In this workshop, you will be wrapping a blank journal in an African printed fabric and designing a cover sheet for the inside of your journal. Once the journals are wrapped and finished we will be setting our affirmations for the new year and using our new journals.
Please keep in mind that seats are limited so you must RSVP for this event. Should you RSVP and are unable to attend, please reach out to us so that we can assure that your seat is filled!
This workshop will be hosted on the second floor of the Upbeat Village Terracotta Gallery!
