For your consideration…

Ok, what is your first thought when you look at the above picture? What do you think the message is about? Does it seem concerning?

Our first thought is a clue on where our thinking is. We are reminded of that today because we are presented many “situations” each and every day. It is how we grow. How we feel or think about those “situations” is key because it enters into how we decide to handle them. Do we look at them as opportunities or problems? If we look at them as problems, how big are we imagining them.

Recently I told a teacher I sub for all of the time that it is close to the end of the school year and the tattling, whining, making mountains out of mole hills etc. should have become nominal but they have not. She agreed and made a chart for them to think about when situations came up.

That chart is how our message came in today. When we think we have a problem, we should be asking ourselves, “Is it a glitch, a bummer or a disaster?” Tattling, whining, making mountains out of mole hills, worrying is an absolute waste of our time and talent. We are asked to think about that.

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?”

-Think about it, “Glitch, bummer or disaster.” Address glitches and bummers or let them roll off your shoulders as you see fit and move right along. Seek help and support for disasters.

What made me smile yesterday?”

-A chill morning.

-A great afternoon with 2nd graders.

-Gordie, Bruce and I went to our clubs steak fry. That turned out to be a disaster that my brother and I laughed and laughed about later that night.

-An early bedtime with a great book.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
