May Happenings

May Happenings | Madefor


We are back with another Monthly Madefor Happenings newsletter, your source for last month's wrap-up, and not-to-miss happenings coming up in May.


💭 A Thought From Our Co-Founder Pat...

Forgive me, but I believe this message bears repeating, as we focus on mental health this month:

Mental wellness isn’t a final destination.

It’s a process that requires continued effort, exploration, and updating. What works today might not be what works tomorrow. Your process will also be different from your neighbor’s, and that’s a good thing. It means that nobody else holds the keys—the answers are inside of you waiting to be discovered.

Take steps today to discover what works for you.

As you get into action this month, remember:

“What is not worth doing, is not worth doing well.” - Abraham Maslow
