International Day of Acceptance

 

Today is #InternationalDayOfAcceptance - This day is one opportunity to tell the world who you are. This is a chance to celebrate abilities rather than disabilities.

International Day of Acceptance is a tribute to the founder of “3E Love” and the creator of the Symbol of Acceptance, Annie Hopkins. The Symbol of Acceptance comprises a wheelchair in the shape of a heart. This symbol helped ignite important conversations about diversity.

Feeling Down or Anxious during the Holidays?

The holiday season is a great time to meet with friends and family, enjoy endless conversations, eat, and laugh. However, this joy is absent in many people. Some people feel down, stressed, or even sad during the holidays.

The holidays for many people represent an array of demands such as cooking specific and very traditional meals, baking, shopping, and getting gifts for several friends and relatives, cleaning the house if they are hosting, etc.
