When setting priorities…remember sometimes….

Sacrifice and Struggle=Success

For your consideration….

Wow, I had affirmations from both myself and my daughter, Alex, that this message was right. But if it weren’t for that, I might have gone back into meditation for clarity. First I had a difficult time finding picture that adequately. Then when I found the above and thought I could make do, my computer froze up. Yikes.

Our message today is exactly this, “Sometimes you have to make short term sacrifices for long term gains.” If we stop, think about it and prioritize, we can reach a decision point. How important to us is this? Are we willing to make sacrifices to achieve the goal…accomplish the task…succeed? If the answer is yes, we can brainstorm the steps we need and prioritize them into our lives. If the answer is no, this is too hard, then we need to rethink where we what we want to do.

Just one additional note. Again we are reminded that it is all good. We learn as much from success as failure. Without judgment they are equal in value.

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.

-Don’t let the short term sacrifices scare us.


What made me smile yesterday…

-Gordie, Lori and I had lunch with our nephew, Josh, and his girl friend. Fun….

-A beautiful day.

-A nice walk on the beach with Lori.

-We thought the super bowl was great.

-A good book.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
