For your consideration….

We have all received the advice…and HOPEfully follow…”Don’t go to bed mad.”

Our message today is similar. We are asked to clean our plate. Just as we don’t leave food for the next day, we should not leave tasks and burdens on our plate for the next day.

Think about those plates that have 3 compartments. At the end of the day, think about what was/is on your plate. If it is done, let it go. If it is not done, think about where it needs to go. Of course, some things are complex. For those things, figure out what part of it you will be working on tomorrow and put it in one compartment. If it is something that we are procrastinating on, ask why. If it is just because we don’t like it, make a commitment to get it done and off of your plate tomorrow. If it is something we don’t like and we are never going to do it. Own up to it and get rid of it by either delegating it or dropping it….bless it and just let it go.

So at the end of each day we have eliminated completed tasks and dropped ones we are never going to do. All that is left is ongoing tasks with a plan for tomorrow and ones that we are going to complete and get rid of.

The goal is to let go of what is no longer serving us and make room for new opportunities. It is key to remember that we are simply doing a little “plate cleaning.” There should not be any judgment. We are making ourselves aware but not judging ourselves. We are cleansing not beating ourselves up.

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 ltos of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths. Put you bare feet on Mother Earth exchanging energies.

-Clean your spiritual plate.

What made me smile yesterday….

-Talking with Dianne.

-Some organizing.

-Going to the show with Bruce and Bob. Yikes, lets call it an experience.

-Listening to Alex laugh as I told her about it.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
