Friendship, Love and Truth


Currier and Ives

For your consideration……

Life is cycles with peaks and valleys, ups and downs, and twists and turns. It is how we learn and grow. Nobody has a perfect life. Everyone has challenges. Today’s lesson is about how we navigate through the challenges and tough times.

Once again we are reminded that we are energy beings. Like energies attract like energies. It can be natural when we are in a funk, slump, dilemma or facing a tough challenge to seek out someone to commiserate with. It is natural to seek out that person that validates our distress. How does that saying go? “Misery loves company.” That is a true statement because like energies attract each other. It is a natural attraction. But that attraction also perpetuates the problem.

Today we are being asked to make wiser choices when the tough times, big and little, hit. Turn to a friend, colleague or family member that is up beat and positive. Turn to someone who has positive energy. Turn to someone who has empathy but does not commiserate with you. The quickest way out of challenging times is to change-up the energy. If you are negative, you need positive energy. If you are in darkness, you need light. Seek out people who have what you need.

There will be people who will say, “I really don’t know who that positive person is that I could turn to.What now?” Remember it is the positive energy you need. Go someplace where people are happy. Park yourself in a chair or on a bench and absorb the energy from the laughter and joy. And you can orchestrate your prayers to be positive affirmations to turn the negativity around.

You have a choice. You always have a choice. When challenges hit, seek out what  you need and not what you already have more than enough of.  That is the HOPE.


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

-Meditate. Try to get to get still enough to notice your inner peace….that center we all have that is perfect.

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

-Drink lots of water.

-Take a walk or do some stretches.

-Make a list of your go-to positive, upbeat, HOPEful people. Make a mental note to call them when faced with a challenge.


What made me smile yesterday……

-Looking at a horrible tragedy to a dear friend, Alex tells me she could cry not because of the tragedy but because of   the HOPE she feels.

-My sister-in-law, Cathy, and I reminded each other of how blessed we truly are.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
