That thing you’re looking for, in response to Thursday’s extension of the public health orders that we’ve been under since November, and to all the emotions so well captured by GD Maxwell in his Pique column last week ? It might be resilience.
Blair Kaplan Venables knows something about it. She’s been through some ups and downs, and was inspired to launch an online community called the “I Am Resilient Project” to help people realize they’re not alone.
On Thursday, Blair is offering a free workshop through the Pemberton and District Public Library, at 7pm, via Zoom, on building resiliency.

Join us on Thursday, January 14th, 2021 at 7 pm for a special workshop on building resiliency with local author and entrepreneur Blair Kaplan Venables.
We all have the ability to be resilient. Resilience is like an invisible muscle that is woven through every fiber of our being, and it requires exercise to strengthen and grow. During this workshop with Blair you will learn five effective ways to strengthen your resilience muscle and be even more prepared to overcome life’s challenges.
