For your consideration….

I should not be surprised that happiness is what today’s message is about. Several times this week when I have turned on my computer, there has been a picture about happiness scrolling across my screen.

I…actually most women in my life….have a tendency to be enablers. Some of it is because it is tough seeing those I care about struggle or in pain. But if I am honest, some of it is because it is just easier for me. It is easier for me to fix something than wait and watch someone I care about tough it out. This is absolute craziness because I don’t want anyone fixing my problems.

I write this because I want you to know I get it. No matter how hard we try or how much we want to, we can not make someone take personal responsibility. And happiness is a personal responsibility. It is a choice. It is a choice we must make ourselves.

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 wait for someone else or something to make you happy. Bless yourself. Choose to be happy.

What made me smile yesterday….

-A perfect day.

-Chatting with Alex and Lori.

-Little tasks done.

-Experimenting with photos on the computer. Technology is amazing. We just have no idea what is at our fingertips.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
