For your consideration…

We know that one of the best motivators is praise. We know that cheering people on for their good work inspires them. Remember the phrase, “You catch more flies with honey than vinegar?” We pretty much accept that as true. Complementing and praising feels much better than criticizing and chewing people out.

Our message today tells us that today that we need to be good to ourselves. We need to pat ourselves on the back when we do things well. It will inspire us to do more. We need to compliment ourselves and honor our hard work.

If we want to be successful in our life purpose, we must feel good about ourselves. We are asked to be as generous with ourselves as we are with others and not forget to pat ourselves on the back.

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.”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Pat yourself on the back.

What made me smile yesterday…

-A beautiful day. Lots of people were outdoors taking advantage of it.

-A walk through the park.

-Alex got a job.

-Out to lunch with Bruce.

-A good book.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
