For your consideration…

Our message today is simply this “celebrate the good.

We are surrounded by negative. It is hard to get away from it. People are shouting at one another. We seem to have lost tolerance, the ability to listen to people who do not agree with us and more than that…if you don’t agree…you are the enemy. Yikes.

Today’s message tells us to stay away from all of that. Rise above. Look for what is right and celebrate it. Look for what is right. Look for what is joyous. Look for what is HOPEful. And celebrate it. Share it. Rejoice in it.

We have a choice. We can wallow in the negativity and anger. Or we can celebrate the good. Whichever we choose, we elevate it.

Sometimes it seems like we can’t help it. We get caught up in the negative. But the second part of our message today tells us not to worry. Remember balance. We have had a lot of references to it lately and today is no different. As soon as we notice the negativity, we simply have look for something good and change our focus. Just like that the negativity is neutralized.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.


Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take…

-Affirm…”I am loved.”

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Celebrate the good.


What made me smile yesterday…

-A day off.

-Laundry done.

-Bills paid.

-A good book.

-I went to go to my class last night and could not get the garage door to open. Why is that good? Because I called my friend and she picked up my recipes. And….the man who has installed and fixed my garage doors for years, said he would be over early in the morning so I could get my car out and get to school.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
