For your consideration….

So often we add or hear a statement with a “but” in it. Our ears always pick up when we hear a “but.” As well they should. Today we are asked to do just that. Pay attention to the “buts.”

“That’s a good idea but…” I wish I could but…” That would be great but…” Notice how the “but” takes the “wind right out of the sails” of a positive statement. If there is a “but,” it is no longer positive and that is key.

Often I hear, I am positive, I say positive things but still…I do not get what I HOPEd for. Saying and thinking positives thoughts are negated the minute we entertain a “but” or “what if.” It is just that plain and simple.

Today’s message tells us to pay attention to the “buts.” Are they really necessary or is that just ego adding its two cents worth? If the “but” is unnecessary, bless it and send it on its way. We no longer need it.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of others?” Remember, it is not for your highest good if it isn’t for the highest good of others.

-Drink lots of water. Drink at least 6-8 oz. per hour.

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

-Pay attention to the “buts.”

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
