Like ripples in a pond, each individual has the power, if not the obligation, to make some small difference that can improve our world.
Canvas Joy is committed to the following principles:
- Integrity: Acting and Living in accordance with our values: honesty, partnership, service, value, hope and optimism
- Possibility: Seeing and acting on possibilities.... problems are nothing more than an opportunity to see what's possible
- Empowerment: Developing confidence in one's own capacities, through skill building, practice, beliefs, and affirmation
- Story: We are the authors of our own story... and can change the plot, storyline, and emotion of the story. We choose which story to tell, and in telling, we publish it to our life canvas
- Community, Caring, & Connection: While we support empowerment, we also know that we cannot exist alone. We are interdependent on others... we serve and are served... we bless and are blessed
