“You get more reward from your efforts when they’re applied in a positive direction. So instead of rebelling against what you dislike, work to build and support what you value and admire.” – Marc and Angel hack Life
Janice Abbott is a woman I admire and respect. She is the Founder and CEO of Atira Women’s Resource Society, which is a not-for-profit organization committed to the work of ending violence against women through providing direct service, as well as working to increase awareness of and education around the scope and impact on our communities of men’s violence against women and children.
If it weren’t for the support of Janice and all the amazing people who work at Atira, the Wall of Joy Mural may never have been created but more importantly the work they do in the community is vital. People have homes, are safe and eat because they took the time to build what was needed.
There will always be difficult situations in life, the perspective and actions we take make all the difference. Thank you to people like Janice, who do what needs to be done.
Happy to celebrate wonderful people doing good 🙂
