For your consideration…..

We are asked to consider a couple of things today. Both have to do with honesty…..truth as you know, see and feel it both from the receiving and delivering sides of it.

First of all we are again reminded to have that “go to” list of people we should turn to when we have a problem and/or are troubled, sad or depressed. Those people are the ones who talk to you honestly. They talk to you from their heart. They speak their truth as they see it. They are compassionate and encouraging. They are not people to commiserate with. If you are down and working from negativity you need to turn to someone who is working in the positive. If their truth rings true to you, great. Accept it gratefully. If it does not ring true, simply let it go. …again, gratefully. (I know we have talked about this before but for some reason we are reminded of it again today. I am not sure why but I get the feeling that it has something to do with the holidays.)

The second thing we are being asked to consider today is our truth from the delivering side. It is from the listener/friend side of things. Again, everything from here on in is about truth. It is important for each of us to search out our truth and it is important that we deliver only truth.

So when that friend, co-worker, family member or even a stranger is conversing with us and/or asks us what we think, we must speak from our heart, our authentic self. When we speak from our heart, it is truth as we see, delivered in a kind and loving way.

Does that mean that it is what the other person wants to hear? Not necessarily. HOPEfully, they are able to hear what you are saying recognizing that you want only their highest good. But if not, if they choose not to hear the truth, that is OK. Our role is to deliver it as we see it and feel it. And then let it go.

The “and then let it go” is important. When we speak our truth from our authentic self, we do not need to defend it. You don’t have to belabor the point. Your truth is what it is. What the receiver chooses to do with your truth is up to them they have a choice. We always have a choice. If your truth is met with opposition, let it go. Most of the problems of the world are because people need to validate themselves by forcing others to conform to “their” truth which is simply unnecessary. Hopefully people soon realize this.


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

-Meditate. Again, their is no greater gift we can give ourselves.

-Drink lots of water.

-Get in at least 10 deep breaths outdoors. (For some of it….those will be cold….but refreshing)

-Stretch. If you don’t exercise, pick an easy one and try it today. Or go for a walk.

-Journal…..Are you grateful? What for?


What made me smile yesterday….

-Alex….soooooooo joyous. Congrats, Babycakes.

-A great school day. Two different schools…two different classes….both great experiences.

-My car is almost done.

-A snuggly bed while we got our first real snowfall.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
