For your consideration…….

At first I thought that this was a strange message for Memorial Day. But as I meditated on it more, I realized that as always, it is exactly perfect.

We are blessed with the freedom to pursue our dreams and life purpose. Many before us and still today make tremendous sacrifices up to and including the ultimate….giving of their life, that we have these opportunities.

How better we honor them than by living our lives to its fullest? How better we honor them than being our best self? How better we honor them than seizing our freedoms and holding them tight? How better we honor them than living in love and joy? How better we honor them than dancing like there is no tomorrow?

That is the HOPE. And so it is.


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

-Meditate/pray. Breath until you are relaxed. Let all problems and tasks float away. Let your inner self be your guide.

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

-Drink lots of water.

-Go for a walk, jog or just sit outside in the fresh air.

-Pause, remember your loved ones. Remember those who have made sacrifices so you can enjoy this day. Remember those who continue to make those sacrifices.

-A special call out to Nick. You make us proud to be an American.

-And the same to you, Babycakes. Happy Memorial Day.


What made me smile yesterday……..

-Meditating outdoors at Stillwater.

-Terrific soccer. AJ and his team are real champs.

-Bill’s hotdogs.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
