For your consideration….

Backpedaling has gotten a bad name. When we think of backpedaling, it has a negative connotation to it.

Our message today says, “Not so fast.” Suspend judgment. Unless the intention is malicious or deceiving, backpedaling is what it is…a change.

We are not stagnant even if we think we are. Nor is life stagnant. It is constantly evolving. Things change and so to should our thinking. As we move through life and life experiences, we learn and grow. We should always be ready to apply that experience and wisdom. If that means, backpedaling, so be it. Do it proudly.

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.

-Don’t let labels scare you.

What made me smile yesterday…..

-A wonderful warm and sunny….for the most part…day.

-A late afternoon thunderstorm at the end of the school day. We were so glad we had added a morning recess. My students were amazed at the amount of rain coming down. Then little Penelope says, “Mrs. Adams, are we safe.” Don’t you love it? She reminded me of my Alex. “Yes, Penelope, we are safe. I promise.”

-Mac’s last basketball game was a good one.

-A great BBQ dinner celebrating Shannon’s birthday.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
