For your consideration…

“Regrets..beating ourselves up…is NOT a recipe for success.” That is the exact message as it was delivered this morning.

Focusing our energy on our mistakes steals from the moments of our accomplishments. It steals from the moment we are in. It keeps us from new beginnings.

Mistakes are part of being human. Everyone makes them. How we handle them makes all of the difference.

Regrets keep our energy in the negative. Gratitude for the lessons learned and for the opportunities in the present moment keeps our energy positive. It creates space for new beginnings, opportunities, and growth.

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.”

-Affirm…“My imperfect self is enough…it is perfect.”

-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. Remember, breath is our reset button. Mother Earth is a healer.


What made me smile yesterday…

-A beautiful day. What a great summer we are having.

-Yvonne made a visit.

-Deliveries came just in time for me to get the boxes broke down before recycle pickup…literally 10 minutes to spare.

-Women’s circle at Anita’s with Kathy.


Love, Blessings, and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
