If I Could Turn Back Time – Braced By Truth

For your consideration…

Do you remember that Cher song, “If I Could Turn Back Time?” It is about regrets. It is about wishing you could take back words you said. It is about taking back hurt you caused someone.

Our message today will probably shock you. It is exactly this, “STOP IT.

We make mistakes….all of us. If we have a healthy conscious, we have regrets when we have hurt someone. We are sorry and HOPEfully we have apologized and done what we can to repair the damage. If it comes from our heart, there is nothing more we can do. Dwelling on it, steals the value of the current moment. It robs it and us from being the best it can be. It prevents our lessons and growth from being put into action.

So STOP IT. Let the past go.

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 ltos of water.

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

-Make the moment we are in the best it can be. That does not mean we have to be in perpetual motion. It means that whatever we are doing make sure we are doing it with love and positive energy.


What made me smile yesterday…

-A beautiful day.

-Some yard clean up done…not all…some.

-Catching up with Jackie and Lori.

-My niece, Kelly, texted me a zoom conference call that she thought I would like. It was fabulous, positive and uplifting.

-Alex made it safely to Guam.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
