What a year it has been! We can’t believe the end of the year is approaching, we are in the thick of the holidays, and we haven’t even finalized our wish list!
We know this year has looked very different from what many of us have expected. While we take time this season to remember the joys and mourn the losses, we want to mark just how far each of us have come in the last 12 months.
Whether you started a new business, went back to school, welcomed a new member to the family (human or animal), or kept facing each day even when you didn’t feel like it — you deserve to be celebrated! Another year in the books. Another year wiser. Another year of trying new things, meeting new people, and making the best of the things we can’t change.
We hope you have time this season to savor the highs and make space to feel and process the lows. There is still much work to be done and we look forward to having the fresh start of the new year. However, before we move forward, let’s reflect on the last year to celebrate some of your favorite things — Manitoba style!
