For your consideration….

I know a girl who used to work for Nancy Pelosi. I will never forget her saying, “There is no such thing as bad publicity. If people are saying your name, they are more likely to remember you.” I remember thinking, “No thank you.”

Today’s message is about relationships….all relationships. Some are beautiful and loving. Some are awful and toxic. Some uplift us and some would tear us down if we would let them. Relationships range from lifelong to only a moment with a passing acquaintance.

Like timing, relationships are Divinely guided. Who we need is put in our path exactly when we need them whether we are looking for them or not, whether they are welcome or not, whether they are nurturing or toxic. People are put in our path for a reason. They help us learn our lessons.

“No relationship is a waster of time. If it didn’t bring you what you want,

it taught you what you don’t want”….author unknown

It is all good.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take….

-Affirm…“I am loved.”

-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 even if it is walking to and from your car.

-Remember, our breath is our reset button. Learning to control it is an invaluable tool.

What made me smile yesterday….

-A great restorative yoga class in the morning.

-Snorkeling in the afternoon.

-Dinner with new friends, Dean and Blanca.

-A good book.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
