For your consideration…

A simple message about simple living. Our message is exactly this, “Don’t overlook the simple…the low hanging fruit…the obvious.”

We all look for bigger and more. We want to advance our life, finances, careers, family experience, friendships, living conditions by leaps and bounds. We tend to think that takes big things, big steps. But our message today tells us that is not the case.

Once again, it is the ego’s judgment that tells us what is bigger and better. Bigger steps are better than smaller ones. But if we subtract judgment, we realize this is not necessarily the case. Any step…move…we make with positive energy is perfect.

We are asked to live in the moment and not be so harsh on ourselves.

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.

-Suspend judgment. Relax.

What made me smile yesterday…

-My sister and I often laugh at how hard we would work on our houses when we were expecting a visit from our mother who was a clean freak. We often say how much we miss our mother but not the stress before her visit. So I had to laugh yesterday when I overheard a couple 4-year-old boys playing in the “drama” area. One says to the other, “I’m vacuuming because grandma is coming over.”

-Another 4 year old girl, when asked to identify letters of the alphabet responded, “Hmmm, let me put my letter glasses on and see if I know more.” At that point she uses her fingers for make believe glasses and promptly identifies more letters. It was hysterical but hey whatever works.

-Catching up with my sister and Alex.

-It was Friday.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
