For your consideration….

Seeking happiness we often look outward. We look for things, people and experiences to make us happy. Lately a lot of our messages are about going within and putting our authentic self in charge….letting it lead our way. It knows our life purpose. It knows our path to happiness.

Today’s message is different. It reminds us that “the gift to self is giving of self.” The gift of self is priceless. Giving comfort, a listening ear, offering council, lending hands, words of praise and encouragement, authenticity, friendship etc. are all priceless gifts that we always have available to gift.

There is more. The key part of today’s message tells us that gifting ourselves to others is a gift to ourselves. Gifting ourselves is reciprocal. When we give of self, our own self is gifted. Our own happiness is boosted. Giving happiness brings us happiness.

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.

-Gift ourselves.

-Getting my hair done which has been long overdue.

-A good book.

-Concern and love.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
