    Week of 3.30.20-4.3.20

    • Literary Magazines Assignment 
    • Mindful Moment (taken from the "Affirmators!" Deck): "CLARITY: By stopping to listen to your inner self, you can separate your intuition from the mental chatter." Being isolated in our own mindspace will be challening the next few weeks... listen to your intuition or "gut" and distinguish these positive, productive thoughts from those that can be negative and overwhelming.
