    Sing in Harmony

    Sing in Harmony

    Sometimes we find ourselves in situations where we have to make the best of it, regardless of the cards that we’ve been dealt. We can choose to do nothing and resign ourselves to lasting dissonance, or we can take stock of our circumstances and with awareness make calculated changes to sing in harmony with one another, making the best of a challenging situation.
