Happy New Year Positopians,

Mandy and Jonathan Chew here!

Gilbert K. Chesterton once said, “The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul." ❤️

We hope that 2021 will bring you and your loved ones renewed joy, peace, and happiness for the soul. May the hardships of 2020 fuel our transformation in 2021 and beyond! 🙌

Remember to stay positive (and test negative!) 🎉
