For your consideration…

I know, I know, many of us are probably thinking…”ugh.” We’re thinking, “Seriously, I don’t want to add one more thing to my plate.”

I’m guilty as anyone else is. But the fact is we are here to learn and grow…for our entire lives. Some say that either we choose to challenge ourselves but if we don’t, the  Universe will put challenges in front of us. It picks for us.

Certainly, that sometimes  happens anyway. But if we are already challenging ourselves, we are in essence in training. We are preparing so that those challenges that come up do not scare us. No, we absolutely know how to handle and conquer them.

Challenges are meant to change us. They are meant to add to our experience and knowledge base. They are meant to strengthen us, make us stronger and more confident in who we are and what we can do.

We are asked today to pick something…anything…and try to conquer it. Maybe it is conquering fear or frustration. Maybe it is a new hobby. Maybe it is an eating or exercise regimen. Maybe it is going someplace new. Maybe it is meeting new people. Maybe it is writing.  Maybe it is volunteering etc. etc. etc.

We all have more to give. We all have room to grow. Making ourselves the best we can be is for our highest good and the highest good of all.

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.

-Make a stretch goal.

What made me smile yesterday…

-A beautiful day.

-Cans taken back and laundry done.

-A good book.

-I volunteered at our club. It was a retirement party. Little did I know that it was for a teacher and I would know many people there. Fun.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
