For your consideration…

Today we think about unhappiness and what causes it. Loss, fear, disappointment and compromising of self are often the reasons for unhappiness Today we are asked to consider the compromising of self.

The attack or coercion of trying to bend our will…make us be or do things that are not conducive to who we truly are…is constant. Whether it is in the work place or in our personal relationships, we can be put into positions of compromising our core values.

When we compromise ourselves willingly or unwillingly, we suffer. Compromising our authentic self wounds us and makes us unhappy.

We are reminded today to stay true to our authentic self. As Paulo Coehlo said, “When you say Yes to others, make sure you are not saying No to yourself.” Our only path to true happiness is by being true to our authentic self. It is the path we were assigned at birth. It is purpose we were designed for.

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.” (exactly as we are)

-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.

-Stay true to our authentic self.

What made me smile yesterday…

-Laundry done.

-Cards made.

-A good book.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
