For your consideration….

I like today’s message for its subtlety. We have all heard the saying “Spice up you life or Add spice to your life.” It is a popular saying because most of us can fall into patterns keeping us in our comfort zone. We become reluctant to leave it even when we find ourselves bored. Or we feel unsettled because we have unwittingly settled in.

Yet, spice is not for everyone or at least not much of it. Today’s message points that out and reminds us that is ok. However, we should consider seasoning. Seasoning offers us a much bigger range of options. It can be spicy or not. It can be as simple as salt and pepper and then go up from there. It can be as exotic as a south seas vacation or as simple as a road trip. It can be as tough as rock climbing or as easy as a neighborhood walk.

The point is all we need to do is something…anything…to season up our life. The choice is ours. We have a choice. We always have a choice.

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.

-Season up out life.

What made me smile yesterday…

-Fun students and working with a friend.

-We found a heating element for my oven. Yes, on top of everything else in the past month, my oven went out. Luckily my brother knows how to fix anything and we are back up and running.

-My awesome brother also, cleaned my gutters, cleaned out my vacuum and its filters and then vacuumed the house.

-Finished a good book and went to bed early. Ahhh.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
