For your consideration….

We are on a journey. By trial and error, triumphs and defeats, trial and error etc., we discover our path. We accept that.

Sometime, however, it isn’t black and white. For example, we are able to do something but perhaps we don’t do it all that well. Or the opposite, we are terrific at something but we don’t really love it. Perhaps we are talking about a job, craft, sport, friendship etc.

Our message today talks about making the decision to pursue or quit. We receive lots of messages about pursuing our dreams, our ability to manifest our desires and not giving up. So it can be confusing to get a message about quitting. Not everything is meant for us. To try things put in our path adds to our depth of life experience. It is never wasted even if we discover it is not our cup of tea.

But here is the key. We need to sit quietly and ask ourselves why we are considering this decision. We need to pause and fully understand what our true motivation is driving us to quit. Is it the learning curve? Is it difficult? Is it boring? Is it time-consuming? Is it too little reward for the effort? These are not necessarily reasons to quit. I will use myself as an example. I am not a great writer. However, quitting is not an option because I know it is what I must do for my life purpose.

Perhaps we have done something for a long time and learned what we needed. Perhaps something no longer serves our higher purpose. Perhaps we have found a new opportunity that we feel we must pursue and it conflicts with where we are now and we can’t do both. Perhaps we always wanted to try something and when we do we discover it is not “all it was cracked up to be.” Reality does not live up to the fantasy.

Life is full of choices. It is ok to quit as long as it is for the right reasons, meaning for our highest good and the highest good of all?

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 all?”

-Drink lots of water.

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

-Be gentle with yourself. Make decisions from your authentic self and know it is ok.

What made me smile yesterday…..

-Movies and lunch with my grandson and his friend.

-A beautiful day.

-I love when it when I have time to adjust time. Having time to switch things around and making things work.

-A great baseball game. AJ’s team won. We got to see Cassandra and visit with great parents.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
