For your consideration…

Today we are reminded to love ourselves first and then remember all of our success.

So often we focus on what we did wrong, perceived failures and recriminations. We are reminded today those are the wrong things to focus on. First of all, every one of them was a lesson. Every one of them was a step to where we are today. We gained strength from overcoming those obstacles and challenges.

Secondly, we have achieved much success. Every one of us has done things we never thought we could do. We have endured what we never thought we could. Are we where we want to be? HOPEfully not. HOPEfully we are anxious to learn and achieve more. One of the fastest ways to do that is to remember all of our successes. Remember all of those things we have accomplished that we never thought we could.

Today we are asked to remember how far we have come and let that inspire us for today and the many tomorrow’s journey.

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.

-Celebrate YOU.

-An easy morning.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
